If only I'd listened If only I'd questioned I'd asked about her At Granny's Knee "Great-grandpa lived where?" And how it had been, When she told me those stories But instead her tales vanished To grow up and marry How things used to be. Into thin air. In the world as it was then. If only I'd listened, If only I'd treasured I'd ask how HER grandpa But instead I was bored. Her wisdom and knowledge Came to this place. The names and the places Gained from the world I'd ask how HER grandma And the dates I ignored. Instead of some college. Stood pioneer's pace. If only I'd asked, If only my Granny But, you know, that perhaps "Granny, how was it then?" Were here again now, She'd reply then to me, Or said to her, I'd hold her and hug her "If only I'd listened "Granny, tell me again." And remember this vow. At Granny's knee!"
