If....Knowing Then What I Know Now - Poem by Helen C Capan

If today were
yesterday
would I have welcomed you so warmly
with open heart and cradling arm
and lots of scented baby oil?

If today were
yesterday
would I have heard God’s whispered warning
“A special son for you, My Child,
who’ll only last a little while”?

If today were
yesterday
would I have heard God’s whispered warning
woven throughout your boyhood bruises
entwined within your teen year trials?

I wonder...
but only for a moment.

If today were
yesterday
Despite the loving whispered warning,
I would have welcomed you as warmly
With open heart and cradling arms
And tons of scented baby oil!
Your life has blessed me so!
