~ If Only ~
If only I could kiss your lips,
and hold you for a while,
Hear your beating heart so close,
or touch your gentle smile.
If only I could hold your hand,
so tight, that you could feel,
the words my heart is holding,
and you'd know my love was real.
If only I could speak the words,
I speak when you're not there,
you'd hear the depth of love for you,
and see how much I care.
If only I could show you, me,
And never from you hide,
you'd see the person that I am,
and keep me by your side.
If only I could look at you,
my eyes displaying clear,
they'd speak the words, ' I love you'
as I whisper in your ear.
If only I could build a path,
that led right to your door,
I'd line it with the love I hold,
for you, for evermore.
If only I could walk that path,
that reaches to your heart,
I'd close the gate behind me,
and we'd never be apart.........
