If I had gone left rather than right
Could I have avoided this from my sight?
Had I waited in the car and not gone in
Would I have avoided the aftermath of another’s sin?
Had I just said the words you needed to hear
Would you be close to my heart; near
If she had allowed me to go with him
Rather than thinking a child is a possession to win
Would I have been spared the emotional pain
A life not lived in disdain
But…….what if it all had not been that way?
Would You have found me ready that day?
You showed me what more wrong turns would do
You showed me to let go and trust You.
