what ifs

October 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

There are so many might have beens,
What ifs that won’t stay buried,
Other cities, other jobs,
Strangers we might have married.

And memory insists on pining
For places it never went,
As if life would be happier

Just by being different.

(Dana Gioia, “Summer Storm”)
