If Only


If only life was easy, no obstacles to face,
Shoulder to shoulder, united in peace,
One loving human race.
If only we could press rewind,
Relive our lives once more,
Erase the many mistakes we've made,
Then give it another go.
They say our dear departed,
Go to a better place,
If only to see them one more time,
To touch their smiling face.
Cancer, the silent killer,
It brings such pain and sorrow,
If only there was a cure,
If only one tomorrow.
Many words are spoken,
So many are said in haste,
If only we hadn't opened our mouths,
For friendships too good to waste.
If only our wishes were granted,
To get the things we need,
Wouldn't it be such a wonderful place,
Such a pleasant one indeed.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
