I Wish I Knew - Poem by Marthe Claude

If I knew
this would be what I didn't wish for

I would have
never hurt myself this way

I would have smiled wider
I would have listened better
I would have looked farther

If I knew
this would be my happy ending

I would have
never said goodbye

I would have stayed longer
I would havve held on tighter
I would have cared more

If I knew
this would be worse

I would have
never chose this path

I would have paid more attention
I would have trusted you more
I would have loved you more

I just wish I knew
