If I am never alone,
Can I still be lonely?

If I never fall,
Can I still stand up tall?

If I never speak up,
Will my voice every ring out?

If I never try,
Do I ever get to fly?

If I never fail,
Can I ever really succed?

If I never see night,
How do I know this is light?

If I never fight,
Am I ever really right?

If I never love,
Will I be loved at all?

If I never learn to love,
If I never let you love me,
Am I ever really happy?

If I never stand,
Will I ever walk?

If I never open these eyes,
Will I be able to see you straight?

If I don't try enough,
Will I be able to test my fate?

If if wouldn't exist,
How could I ever 'If' you about?

This is one nice iffy thing...

Hope to read more from you,

regards,
sudhir.

The best thing you can do is the right thing,
The next-best thing is the wrong thing,
And the worst thing you can do is nothing.

In the immortal words of Garth Brooks..."How you ever gonna know, If you don't at least try?"

Very good questions , everyone. But you are the only one that can answer them.

All my love,
Jeffrey
