If It Should Come To Be

Rating: 3.3
If it should come to be,
This proof of you and me,
This type and sign
Of hours that smiled and shone,
And yet seemed dead and gone
As old-world wine:

Of Them Within the Gate
Ask we no richer fate,
No boon above,
For girl child or for boy,
My gift of life and joy,
Your gift of love.
William Ernest Henley

We should always be grateful to the Almighty for all His gifts and blessings that enrich our lives: No boon above, For girl child or for boy, My gift of life and joy, Your gift of love.
