If I knew….


If I knew.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"We learn too late to be quiet. Anger and violence leads only to more pain and sadness." 

If I knew—-



 If I knew.
 I would of  loved more and said less.



Sweet memories slip into my mind of us.
Two people loving and holding tight like it was our last moment.



I remember walking  hand in  hand with you.
On lonely beaches.
Never more happy.



 The sweet times are rare now.


 Eyes of youth had faded away with life burdens and losses.

 I look into the mirror and see a tire man.



 I wish to go back and feel again.
 To hunger for sweet  kisses and love till the morning light.



Walk down the naked beaches of Monterey coast.
In a mist of silence with a gentle hand in mine. 



 I didn’t know laughter and dreams would fade away.



 If I knew I would of try to stop time.



 Held you like you were my last breath.
