IF...


Oh if...
If my heart followed you...
Where would my feet be?
Would I be able to remember?
Would I find a way to embrace you?

If I took the time to run...
And hang on to the trails you blaze-
took the moment given me-
To alone,
Place your heart in mine...

How would you know love?
If love had never come before?
How would I?
Not fool myself-once more?

If love is real
And not just an emotion-
If love is more
Than starry eyed devotion...

Oh if...Time...Be my friend...
And seasons too...
And love come calling...
Drawn to a sweeter revelation...
As I wonder if...Love...can be true...

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
