If I Knew Then…

If I knew then what I know now I would have walked more And ate less If I knew then what I know now I would have given my kids more time And less money If I knew then what I know now I would have loved my parents more While they lived instead of after they died If I knew then what I know now I would have spent three more years in the army Wonder if I would have made a good officer? If I knew then what I know now I would have had more friends By being more of a friend If I knew then what I know now I would not have planted my daughter In such poor soil If I knew then what I know now I would have more patience And argued less If I knew then what I know now I would have realized my brother Was as lonely as me If I knew then what I know now I would have pitied my school mates Instead of wishing them ills If I knew then what I know now I would not fear the unknown But welcome the adventure If I knew then what I know now I would not have been a bullied kid External bruises are better than internal sorrow If I knew then what I know now I would still be a republican And still a moderate If I knew then what I know now My regrets would not exist Better ways for better memories Tom Boyd
