If Only...

Updated: Jul 30, 2021

I wish, when I gaze into those alluring eyes,

They could gaze back at mine

I wish, when I touch those fingers,

They could with mine, get intertwined

I wish, from far, cradled by the sugar wind,

You could sense my fragrance, like old times

I wish we could once more, escape the world,

Run beyond time and and commit forbidden crimes

I wish I could feel once more that sunlight ring

In love and passion, heavy as lead

I wish, on the moonless night which I could not see,

You could have seen me, by the flame, veiled in red

I wish I had, all my life, beholden your sacred view,

But that once,

If only I hadn't, with the car steering in my hand,

Turned to look at you….
