If Only I Had Known...

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister


IF ONLY I HAD KNOWN

"That truth could have set me free to change...

  • If only I had known

    I would never hear your voice again, I would cherish your every word...every inflection of your voice with all my heart.

  • If only I had known

    this was our last hug. I would hold you tight and hope to never let you go.

  • If only I had known

    this was the last time, the very last time, I would see you, I would take the time to treasure everything about you.

  • If only I had known

    I had the chance to pray with you one more time, I would take your hands and welcome God's presence to surround us.

  • If only I had known

    that I was powerless to change other people, I would have stopped trying and been free to love them for who they were, flaws and all.

  • If only I had known

    that momentary pleasures could ruin a reputation for a lifetime, I would have found the strength to say no to temptation.

  • If only I had known

    tomorrow was not coming, I would ask you to please forgive me for any wrong I may have done to you.

  • If only I had known

    I could never share another day with you, I would make the most of every second.

  • If only I had known

    this was the last gift I could give you, I would surprise you with something that says nothing compares to you.

  • If only I had known

    my choices...however small and seemingly insignificant...were taking me away from you, I would turn around and run to you.

  • If only I had known

    your hand would never hold mine again, I would wish this moment would never end.

  • If only I had known

    my voice was about to go silent, my words to you would be punctuated with "I love you's!"

  • If only I had known

    that grief and heartache could be so deep and devastating, I would have been there more often for you.

  • If only I had known

    that a child's days are sometimes cut short, I would wish for more long nights of rocking you to sleep.

  • If only I had known

    that anyone can betray you, even when you least expect it, I would have chosen more carefully who I trusted.

  • If only I had known

    I was about to lose your smile, I would thank you for all the joy you've brought to my life.

  • If only I had known

    that love and strength and support you've always given me were about to end, I would run to your side and thank you for the million times you've made a difference in my life.

  • If only I had known

    that when God closes a door, He opens another, I would have been less afraid of change and more welcoming of new opportunities and adventures.

  • If only I had known

    that sticking with it is a way of life, I would have learned more from my failures and setbacks.

  • If only I had known

    that something so stupid and wrong would hurt you so badly, I would take a stand and never let it happen.

  • If only I had known

    that it isn't enough to empty my life of wrong, but to fill it with things that truly matter.

  • If only I had known

    that everything depends upon what you believe, and that ignorance is no excuse, I would have been more vigilant to put truth into my heart.

  • If only I had known

    the depths of wisdom and insight possessed by people around me, I would have spoken less and listened more.

  • If only I had known

    I could never tuck you into bed again, I would cuddle you tight, refuse to rush, and enjoy the wonder of being with you.

  • If only I had known

    my days were coming to an end, I would number them carefully...one by one...and ask God to help me make the best use of my time because the days are far too fleeting.
