If Only...

If you could see

As far as you could see

Would it look any different?



If you could run

As far as you could run

Would you finally be there?

Would you be done?


If you could hear

Everything you wanted to hear

Has it all been said?

Not so, I fear.


If you could touch

All you wanted to touch

Would you be satisfied?

Not so much.


If you could smell

All there is to smell

Would you lose the scent?

It’s hard to tell.


If you could taste

Whatever you wanted to taste

Would the flavors overwhelm you?

Or would you let them go to waste?


If you could sing

Every song you wanted to sing

Would the notes fail you?

Like a violin without strings?


If you had another chance

Just one more chance

Would you let it slip away again

Braindead in a zombie trance.


If they could see you now

Really see you now

Would you be any different?

Make them stay somehow.
