If I

IF I –
by Richard M. “Pek” Gunn”
Poet Laureate of Tennessee

If I could go back and undo
Some wrongs I’ve done along the way,
And know that wounds that I have caused
Were healed of all the scars today.

If steps I’ve caused some to take
By thoughtless ways in which I’ve trod
Have led to a confused estate.,
Instead of simple trust in God.

If someone else still wanders on
Who followed my unsteady track.
And lost his way for lack of light
Because my lantern globe was black.

If I could gather up and bind
The wasted years that I have spent,
And treat them as they’d never been
Today I’d be much more content.

I’m pardoned from my undone past-
But even so the hurt is done,
For out there somewhere in the dark,
A soul is lost I might have won.
