The Kyneton Writers Group meet here at our place
on the third Sunday of each month and we take it in turns to suggest a topic for the following meet.
The topic suggested last month was 'What If'
What if I had my life to live over
I wonder if I’d do the same things again,
Especially if I knew what I now know
No, I think from that pathway I’d refrain.
It would be a much different pathway I’d follow,
For I’d know all the pitfalls to elude,
Perhaps I’d become a property investor
Or a share trader might be the pathway pursued.
For a good education I’d go off to Uni’
To study hard and make a success of my life,
I’d steer clear of all the backbreaking work
But I’d still take my wife as my wife.
Of course if I did have my life to live over
And the pathway to success I wished to climb,
I dare say that I’d do the same things again
For you do what you think is right at the time.
But then I think, what if I had won Tatts-lotto
Say back about twenty-five years ago,
Perhaps I wouldn’t be in a wheelchair today
And maybe a different pathway I’d hoe.
But then I think of all my many blessings,
My keen memory to me is number one,
Also to have a very broad sense of humour,
So I think my battle is more than half won?
The very fact that I have a large loving family
Who all help ease the pressures of life?
Yes every day I count all my blessings,
Number one being my wonderful wife.
