If Only - Poem by Christian Eliab Ratnam
If only I could hold your hand,
And not want to hold it longer.
If only I could look at you,
And not want to behold you longer.
If only I could talk to you,
And not want to speak with you longer.
If only you didn’t steal my heart,
And incuse your name on it.
If only you didn’t fill my heart,
As insatiable as it was insipid.
If only you didn’t smile at my smile,
And told me how much you loved me for it.
Now my love…I wish these things,
Now that I am away.
But always remember,
If only I was with you,
I would have only said,
I will love you forever.
