If Only I Could Be

If Only I Could Be


Summer’s gone, winter’s here
fall is past, spring is near.
I’ve come back, I’ve come back
to love you, again.

When will you tell me so?
When will I really know
that you love the way
that I love you?

Running wild, running free
through the sand, by the sea
I’m so happy you have come to me.

Will you do what I say?
Stay by me every day?
Happiness is what makes people free.

If only I could be,
something that I see.
Would I see the love in your eyes?

If only I could be,
something that I see.
Would I see the life or would I die?

Feel the wind…..
see the waves….
always rushing in a daze,
crashing noisily upon the shore.

There they come,
one by one,
here to die beneath the sun.
Isn’t life, itself, just like a wave?

  1. So pretty. Do you compose music too? What nice lyrics this poem would make.
