What if we’d stayed at home?

What if I’d lost my keys?

What if we’d been delayed?

What if I’d hit traffic?

What if we’d stopped to eat?

What if I’d lost our tickets?

What if I’d hadn’t insisted?

What if I’d had a flat tyre?

What if we weren’t even at the festival?

What if they’d never built the Mandalay? 

What if we weren’t directly opposite that
Pane of pain?

What if we’d simply changed our minds?

What if we’d bent to tie our laces-
At that moment ?
