If Only~by Lilian Dipasupil Kunimasa


 

 

If Only

 

If only my hands can wave
like breeze on ocean wave
then before you I can be brave

if only my hands can flow
like river in mountain flow
then before you I can just glow

If only my hands can kiss
like sun on grass glade kiss
then you I shall never ever miss

If only my hands can touch
like butterfly a flower touch
then before you I can say so much

but my hands can’t wave goodbye
for my eyes will surely cry
but my hands can’t flow on your hair
for my heart secrets won’t share

but my hands can’t kiss your lips
for my tongue love words slips
but my hands can’t touch your finger
for I shall besides you linger

All my hands can do today
is hold you in special way
show feelings that grow each day

But if only you’ll allow me so…
