“Ifs” and “Whys”

If the world was flat
I doubt that I would
have anyone to remember
or anyone to thank.

But thank God there is
a God.

If God didn’t bring my
father through World War
Two, I wouldn’t be here.

Life is full of “ifs”
we don’t understand
and we can only ask

why.

If George hadn’t died
from ground fire in
Vietnam at liftoff…

Why?

Today I remember a
lifetime of “ifs” and
“whys” and give thanks.
