If Only.....

On/Line lovers lament...

If only you knew what beats in my heart
My deepest wish we should ne'er part
A windowed meeting so opportune.

If only I had a moment of time
To see your smile, my spirits climb
One small glance so non-picayune.

If only I had you for one brief hour
To sit at the table, give you a flower
That hour would leave too soon.

If only I had just a brief day
To walk in the park by the bay
Upon warm sand and cross the dune.

If only I had but just one evening
To hold you and keep you from leaving
Embracing by the glow of moon.

If only I had the rest of my life
To comfort you, keep free of strife
Every day made a honeymoon.

And when my time finally eclipse
Song in my heart, your name on my lips
Upon the sea my ashes are strewn.

If only I had that first moment
Rest of my days to live content
For one small moment ending too soon.

If only...
