If I Knew You Then (A Poem)

If I knew you then,
Rather than later,
Your past would be part of our yesterdays.

If I knew you then,
Rather than later,
Those others would have gone their own ways.

If I knew you then,
Rather than later,
Your life would be filled with less pain.

If I knew you then,
Rather than later,
Ten years would be our love’s reign.

If I knew you then,
Rather than later,
I would have told you how great you would be.

But I know you now,
Rather than then and
I’m so grateful that you’ve chosen me.

And knowing you now,
Rather than then,
Is better than never at all.
