The Unknown

Rhyming Poetry

If I could view the future,

I wonder what I would see?

If I could look past tomorrow,

what awaits there for me?

If I knew the time my life would end,

what preparations would I make?

If I knew I had to soon depart,

what possessions would I take?

If I had to say goodbye to loved ones,

because this was my last day,

Could I get my feelings across,

would I know the words to say?

If I could go back in time,

to mistakes I made in the past.

I'd change them all, make them right,

and live each day as though its my last.

But I'd rather go on living,

not knowing what's in store.

I think that the unknown,

makes us appreciate life even more.
