If You Only Knew

My love is strong.
It can overcome struggles and strife.
It can hold things together in the darkest of night.
It can withstand a lifetime of hopes and dreams delayed.
It can take anything but you.

If you only knew how much I cared.
How I longed for your embrace.
How I wish you would share
Your dreams and desires.

If you only knew how deep my love was.
Would you have tried?

If you only knew what a soft touch meant.
How I longed for a hug.
How good your strong arms felt.
If you only knew how much a thoughtful gesture meant
How flowers would make my day.
Would it have mattered?

If you only knew the cost of your fears
When you threw it all away.
Afraid to step up and be brave.
There’s a price for not trying.
Our future is shattered.
Now I know the truth.
I never really mattered.
