And If I Knew? - Poem by Lily Espinosa

If I knew all the answers
To every question you'd ever asked, thought or imagined,
Would it change how things are now?
If I could stop time, speed it up or slow it down
Would it all be different somehow?
If I could give you the world on a plate, special powers
Or an amazing trait
Would life still remain mundane?
I wonder if you'd love me more, less or just the same.
If I knew,
I'd give it all to you.

    A charming poem. If we knew, would life be any better? Personally, I believe there's magic in the mystery! (Report) Reply

    the gift of yourself
    all a human can give
    because the other wants the sweet
    soil of self
    to give life to the roots of being
    a fine poem
