Treasure Island

Jason Atkinson

(January 11,1984 / San Jose)

Only If

I know you don't want to hurt again
Settling for so long without the friend
living only until memories end
Through time beyond forever begins
if only if only
foregiveness shows you love once more
higher and higher your soul will sore
do you hear the voice or dream anymore
if only if only
you were to dream that dream of before
when you felt the love for Christ as The Lord
The choice stays yours to live your life as a chore
if only if only
You could speak the desires of your heart
or feel the love of light in the dark
Although healing takes time He has never forgot
if only if only
You would let His arms reach where you are
would you confide in Him or stay scared with the scars
if only if only
you could see the lesson you'd learn
Your grief will find a way for pain to return
You would wander not find and stay in concern
if only if only
You would choose Christ for your life
to live forever with love without pain without strife
never will you have to say your goodbyes
only hello through gates afterlife
If only

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
