If Only…. Original Poem

At times of unease and painful turmoil

You’re there.

Just when I begin to think that I’m worthless,

You’re there.

You’ve been there for me through it all,

And yet we’ve only known each other for a short time.

Of all the right people

The one wrong person is always there for me.

How can you know

That I need you?

How can I explain why

You are completely wrong for me?

My heart aches when we’re not together.

My mind burns trying to think of what you’re doing,

Every moment of the day I’m without you.

You are my everything.

Yet at the same time so wrong for me.

I’m not right for you either, but

I can’t find a way to keep away from you.

If only we were right for each other.

If only I wasn’t a coward.

If only my love was felt from you.

If only you needed me the way,

I need you.

If only….
