IF WE HAD KNOWN"

IF WE HAD KNOWN”
If we had known that the favor you did for us
would be the last good deed of your hands
We would have asked you to do something
that was impossible for any woman, girl, boy or man
Like walking the shores of the seven seas
and count each grain of sand
Then turn every one of them into a year
that you would dwell upon the land.
If we had known that when we saw you it would be the last time we would see your face
The camera in our eyes, would have taken a picture of your smile, and stored it in a safe place
