~ If Only You Love Me ~

If only you love me
I could touch the moon,
If only you love me
Am I asking too soon.

If only you love me
My heart will still beat,
If only you love me
My life is complete.



If only you love me
Blue skies I can see,
If only you love me
My heart will be free.

If only you love me
I see your sweet eyes
If only you love me
The ocean will rise,
Sunset's turn green
As sweet as the grass
Your love helps me forget
All of my past.

If only you love me
I will be whole,
Take me in your arms again
With my head on your shoulder
I know I will mend.



If only you love me
I have beauty within,
There is a glow to be known
If my soul can be seen.

If only you love me
Time heals all wounds
Can you tell I am special,
I want to be yours,
If only you love me
Will you be true,
Will you be all these things
My love is for you.




Linda Ann Henry 2005
Do you remember me
The people's poet



The face is the mirror of the mind,
and eyes without speaking,
confess the secrets of the heart.
Saint Jerome (342 AD - 420 AD)
