What If?
by Tracey Lynn Rose

There are ways I could have you,
      without a single word;

There are reasons I could give you,
      that wouldn't sound absurd.

There are times I could want you,
      that you will never feel;

There were moments you kiss me, 
      but they aren't even real.

There are words I should write you,
      that never could explain-

There are actions that may hurt you,
      but you'd never show the pain.

There are nights I could touch you,
      that would end this ache inside,

There are feelings I should show you,
     where I wouldn't want to hide.

There are silences I could fill,
      and heartbeats you would hear;

There are shadows where I'd whisper -
      that, "love can conquer fear."

There are ways I could look at you,
      when my heart is there to see;

There are dreams I would give you...
     but they aren't meant to be.
