If Only....

Image from Pinterest:

if only
i could run daily
on the beach each day
away from this desert town

if only 
i could find the happiness
which comes
from being closer to you

if only
i could look forward
to doing the little things
which make up a day in a life...

if only
i could be there
whenever you felt the need
to call so we could be together...

if only
i could turn back time
and find another way
so I didn't have to go...

if only
i could feel the joy
in hearing your laughter
and feeling your arms around me

if only
we could sit over lunch
or dinner or breakfast
just talking about whatever

if only
we could play a game
or watch a video watch your face brighten in a smile

if only
i could be there
for all the memories
instead of hearing over the phone or watching a video

if only
i could tell you
without making you 
share this heavy burden

if only
i could bloom
where I am planted
and make the best of it

if only
i could shake the sadness
to awaken my creativity
and find so many ways  to show you 

if only
i could pick you up
and enjoy your company for the day
or weekend...

if only
we could sell this house
I'd do it in a minute
to find something, anything closer to you

if only
i had one wish
it would be
to be closer to you

I love you

If only .... I have so many things I could say.

A poignant poem here, Donna. I feel the same about some things.
