If Only

Roses are red,

Rivers are blue,

If only I had time

To say "I love you",

Before you had left 

And I don't think that you ever knew, 

How much I truly loved you.

And now you're back again,

But with someone new.


You once asked me if I would have 

A garden every time I thought of you,

I had answered no and you wept a great deal

But if only you had let me continue,

I would have said, "If I had a flower

For every time I thought of you,

I would have, not a garden, but one rose

Because you came and never left

And I will always think and love

No one else but you."
