If I Knew You When

Back when love was young

If I knew you when
back then
when love was young

Back when the drinks flowed 
freely
to fill the favored need

Back when the touches flowered
grew so 
abundantly

Back when the blossoms
soared 
wafting the billowed scents

The needs
we could have shared
back when I was young

Before
you were young

When my body was ever so true
and strong

If I knew your bright
shining spirit
your art
your charm
back when I was young

Squinting into the sunflower rays
of youth
beaming into my heart
back when I was forming
boyish
and yearning

Looking back now
as the light of pining
of knowing
of growing
still beaming
still youthful
still bonnie
darling daring eyes 

I was ever so young
back then

Would that I knew you when
