If I Could Be - Poem by Lilly D'souza

If I could be, what I want to be
I would be, the love that you seek.

If I would be, what you think of me
I would be, never so mild and meek.

If I should be, what you want to see
I should never cry but only look with glee.

If my meekness and sadness
Has never made you realize my love for you.

I think it’s time for me
To be only what I can be.
