If

If I could walk on water
If I could calm your sea
Perhaps you'd take a second chance
And trust your heart to me

If I could make your sun shine
If I could rise your moon
Perhaps you'd really look at me
And see you left too soon

If I could bring you wisdom
If I could mold your dreams
Perhaps you'd know just who I am
All is not as it seems

But then I'd have to wonder
Whose purpose was defined
Would you have made these choices
Had I not controlled your mind?

Brilliant piece! Hugs, Dee
Bridging the differences, closing the gaps between lovers, old or new, but especially old is a problematic business. Maybe better to work with acceptance of them as the final stanza implies in this terrific piece of quality poetry. Fluid, rhythmic and plaintive. Excellent Linda. jim xxx
