If I Could Write A Song For You - Poem by Helen C Capan

If I could write
a song for you,
I’d fill it full
of fluff and fun.
I’d stuff it with
the softest bear,
a playful thing
I do declare.

The core would be
of brightest sun,
the smile you give
to me bar none.
Its arms would reach
beyond their stretch
to hug and warm
your heart to catch.

I’d fill it with
the freshest air
of park and lake
that day so fair.
For you, my dear,
are just the one
who felt me when
so much was wrong.

I’d fill it with
the trust and hope
you gave to me
to help me cope.
Alas, this song
cannot contain
the truth of how
my feelings changed.

A single call
from you to me
I’m sure will let
this song to be.
