If only I looked long enough; I would have seen the flares in your eyes.
If only I had taken your laughter to heart; your feelings would have never been hurt,
If only I melted to the embrace of your soft arms,
You would forever have belonged in mine.
If only I had looked beyond the smile in your face,
Together we’d be facing life challenges to date,
If only I had attached more meaning to the time we held hands;
beside me you’d always stand.
If only I had taken your face in my hand to caress,
I would still swimming in the depth of their warmth.
If only I had taken our times alone to mean more than having fun,
You’d still stand my biggest fan.
If only if I had taken the passion which characterized your presence on a bigger note;
If only I taken your shows of affection at heart,
If only I had realized that you meant more,
If only had taken your tight hugs to be not just hugs,
If only I had listen to my guts
If only I had known you adore me secretly
If only I had not been so stubborn to see what was screaming from all corners…
But unfortunately I didn’t;
I only realized it when I saw the tears in your eyes,
Your pure form of affection; your undivided loyalty,
Came to mean something when your heart was already in pieces.
It hurt to shatter everything at a nick but;
I Just wish I had known from the start.
That your smile wasn’t just a smile but it went along mine.
