#23) If Only

If only we could pick and choose, the ones we love and never lose

A single wink of sleep at night, and never even have to fight

.

To keep a heart without a fuss, belonging always just to us

We’d never fear to fall apart, or break another fragile heart

.

If only we could all foresee, the ones with whom we’re meant to be

Forever by the side to love, we’d never have to look above

.

To every lonely wishing star, that sits on high and sees so far

Into the hearts of every one, and grants each wish that can be done

.

Within the lines of stiff reason, that makes our hearts commit treason

Against all better faulty sense, that causes us all to fold and wince

.

If only we could just take back, our words and heal each painful crack

We’d never have to care at all, for those we push and cause to fall

.

If only we could stay so blind, as we cross each single line, into the hearts and through the minds, of every one we leave behind

.

If only we could really choose, we’d never have to all refuse

.

To listen to our hearts and love, when love rains down from up above
