If We Could (Revised 24/2/07)

If I could tell you what will surely set you free.
If I could help you understand all that you can see.
If I could hold you when you cannot even stand.
If I could love you no matter what you say or do.
If I could answer all the questions that play upon your mind.
If I could mend your heart when it is broken, shattered in my hand.
If I could tell you words which remove all that you will fear.
I would, I would, but would anybody hear?
You could! You could! Because I love you dear!

David, this is a beautifully written poem and the last three words 'would anyone listen? ' very poignant. It brings into question a lot of the time does anyone listen? All we can do is hope that at least one person does. Great poem. Thanks for sharing it. David
Ends in a sense of hopelessness, but your message is deeper. Well done!
