If Only - Poem by Igor Grey Balatsky

If only
I became a wind
a rain or just a cloud

If only
I became a bird
to spread my hungry wings
in the far distant flight
to the edge of my
dreaming

I'm nothing
but a sunbeam
that wakes you up in the morn

I'm just a song
that always sounds in your heart
which is so far apart
but is never
alone

    Yes, Sunbeam. A lovely poem. By now you realize that we choose many titles the same for I too have one entitled 'If Only'
