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.
