If Only - Poem by Eddie Rodgers

If only I could touch the clouds from standing so firmly on the ground, and if only I could kiss your lips the way I use too when you would get mad and frown. If only I could hold what I have not missed a day before, and go thru life grieving not a second or minute more. If only I could have taken away your excruciating pain, and removed that heart burdened trouble that had marked your life like a permanent stain. If only I could cover what’s been unveiled way too long, and that’s the vision of pain of when you left and had to go on. If only I could change the things of which I would seek, the way I would stare and watch and the words to you I would speak. Could you still have been here instead of being a memory in my mind, or would you still have had to go on with the passing of impatient time. If only I could bring you back for one entire day and tell you those words of love that I just forgot or didn’t have the courage to say. If only I could hold you in my arms forever and place a kiss upon your forehead and you say how sweet my dear and lovely because you make everything better. If only I can kiss what my lips cannot kiss or taste anymore, for this is a want my heart surely craves for. If only I could ease my agonizing pain, because there’s been no hope, no reason to live, no spontaneous gain. If only I had the choice to make things the way they were before, then it would be you my love who would be my choice because this is what my heart so surely would choose for. If only………………………………..............
