If ...

Prompt 6 focuses on the word IF - Think of a milestone event then think back to the little moments that made the big event happen, write advice to someone in a format inspired by Rudyard Kipling's poem If or combine the idea of daydreams and do a "Once Upon a Time" starter.

The very first thing I thought of when I read the title of today's prompt was this song ....


If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can't I paint you
The words will never show
The you I've come to know

If a face could launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go
There's no one home but you
You're all that's left me too

And when my love for life is running dry
You come and pour yourself on me

If a man could be two places at one time
I'd be with you
Tomorrow and today
Beside you all the way

If the world should stop revolving
Spinning slowly down to die
I'd spend the end with you
And when the world was through

Then one by one the stars would all go out
And you and I would simply fly away

Then I decided on this:

If I had another second in today I would put another kiss upon your chubby baby cheek,
If I had another minute in today I would hold you closer for just a little longer,
If I had another hour in today I would sit and sing you lullaby's and stroke your tiny fingers and toes,
If ...

Such beautiful words fit for any baby. Almost makes me want to kiss my sleeping babies.
