If I Had Known... - Poem by Maveriqué Richard
If I had known that our love would ne'er be;
If only I'd known that it'd live to die in me.
If I'd got to know that its story shall not be told;
I'd have traded all that I could for once be bold.
If I'd ever thought it right to quit your gentle soul;
If I'd ever known that I'd go to not return,
If I'd ever known that this stale day would be my last;
I know I'd have loved to tell you that I loved you so.
If I ever foresaw the darkness that struck me all but once;
If I ever heard when Its rumour had aired about,
If ever till now I knew that I'd not see you again,
I know I'd have love to keep you always by my side.
Now, the death I died had happened when I did not know;
It cast'd its spell and swallow'd up the love I could not show,
It had me for its slave while I dodged its ruthless blow;
If only I knew, I'd have told you I loved you so.
The grief and pain I feel had got me drowned in my own tears;
The thought of how you'd fend and fare are all that I do fear,
I wished I had a second more to tell it all to you:
'I've always loved you so, even though I could not show.'
