Destined - Poem by Elizabeth Shield

if I wrote you a letter
my dreams and my fears
reduced to mere words
and phrases
if my voice was yours alone to hear
could I give you my burdens to bear
would you reply?

if I sent you a dream
my love and my hate
such bold-faced feelings
shared
if you could possibly relate
circumstance begot by fate
could you cherish it?

if I gave you a key
my future, my life
carefully kept secrets
gentle hopes
if you could keep me
and you would love me
would you use it?

if I knew your name
how you like and dislike
oh, precious personality
a dear friend
if it was what God ordained
and our feelings be the same
would you be mine?
