If...... - Poem by STELLA BARKLEY

If only I could have shielded you from pain
But I had to do what I had to do to win your heart again
I never meant to hurt you
I never meant to lead you
To a place where your heart would soar
I just wanted you to take the time to know me once more
Maybe it was cold and cruel
The display that I had to show
But letting you go so easily
Your walking out the door
It was a constant question lingering in my head
I had to know
Now that I do and we both know the truth
About how you really feel
I can pick up and move on
Now my heart can finally heal
