IF I HAD TO MAKE A CHOICE
Sometimes I get to thinking
Of our long and distant past,
Of all the things we’ve seen and done
And how our fate was cast.
And sometimes I get to thinking
Of all the laughter and the tears
That we have shared together
Down through these many years.
And I wonder as I’m thinking,
Just every now and then,
If I had to make a choice,
Would I do it all again?
So, I think about the good times
And the bad times I recall.
Each a mixture of the thing called life
And I would want to have it all.
For the tears were merely pearls
But the laughter was pure gold,
Each one etched within my heart
Loving memories to have and hold.
And in our life of good and bad
I believe God had a hand,
And it seems that things worked out
Just the way that He had planned.
So, when I get to thinking
As I'm sometimes prone to do,
I know I'd do it all again
And thank God He gave me you.
