A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

What If…










If that moment had been
Delayed, by just that
Infinitesimal second;
I know, I would have seen you.

If that plea had been
Received, just that bit
More openly, all that unspoken
Pain, and questions…

You know, I would have been
A better human.

If my hand had reached out
And held on to yours-
Perhaps you’d have regained
Your footing; and then, for sure
I know, we’d have been blessed.

Sadly, all I can say now is-

What If…

A rambler, pretends to be a teacher, loves to dream, and go on Quixotic Quests in the Realm of Romance With Life...

  1. ‘What if’s could be for the better or worse
    If could well be kickass or curse
    So, no regrets
    Finish the frets
    Life should not be lived in reverse!

    • Life should not be lived in reverse, yes, Gulshan 🙂 Still , sometimes, unbidden, one goes trippin’ down that memory lane, much to one’s own dismay 🙂

      Thank you for the warmth and succor you always bring 🙂


  2. Could’ve, would’ve – these words plague us too much in the moments after something has gone wrong. The reality -that we cannot do anything about it anymore – really hurts.
