A letter for you


I would like to say I miss you…
Maybe, even that I love you…
But, the dawn is foggy and you are far away…
And, it’s not the time yet

I wish to say you swept me off my feet
One thin little wild gypsy beat…
Tell you, that I drowned in your eyes…
Yet, I know I would only scare you away

What if, we had met before…
Perhaps shared a coffee or a few words…
What if I could have said this with my eyes deep in yours…
What if…

Time changes everything and covers old wounds…
Till we forget it's still raw inside
Now, it’s blown wide open…
And, all I have is a letter for you

I wish I knew what to say…Wish you felt differently…
Wish I was not so afraid of losing you…
Wish you knew how I feel…
But, here I am guitar…letter…me

"What if I could have said this with my eyes deep in yours…
What if…"


what if?... a wish unfulfilled a dream yet not true.. but a hope that keeps us going... life is full of regrets and dreams...

"what if?".. is one among others.. i could have been... but isn't

This is beautiful. So sincere and eloquent, I feel as if I can here the guitar strings playing the background. Your lines flow effortlessly into one another. I love your imagery. Definitely food for thought. I write poetry as well. Maybe you would enjoy some of mine? Take care, and keep writing!
