IF I

If I want to make the now forever, if I...

Want to drown in you when times are tired, could I?

Want to hide beneath your wings and cry, should I?

Would I, lie, and make believe that I see you?

 

If the he I see is him, within the you, I see, today. Would I?

Love you now so I could feel the memories taking shape.

If I stay close enough, he breathes beneath your face.

I close my eyes and taste him through your lips, my yesterdays.

 

If I want to make the now forever, if I...

Want to drown in you when times are tired, could I?

Want to hide beneath your wings and cry, should I?

Would I, lie, and make believe that I see you?
