A LIFE LIVED DIFFERENTLY
If mine had been a life lived differently,
if I had made other choices
what would the outcome have been?
If I had chosen a different
or a different car —
maybe such a small change
as a left turn instead of
when that choice was mine.
Would I have been as happy
with that life as I am with
this one? I wonder about these things
then I look at your face, your smile–
I look into those beautiful eyes
and I realize
no different life, no matter how
I would have lived it
could possibly be better than mine.
