February 14, 2010 - If Only For Awhile

 
 
If Only For Awhile


If I could only hold you close if only for awhile
A smile, it would put upon this face
I miss you more than I thought I would
No one can ever take your place
 
A light would spark in these eyes of green
The eyes that you make smile
If your blue eyes I could see  
If only for awhile

A gentle peace would rest inside my heart
If I could feel yours beat with mine
While I hold you close and my eyes smile
If only for awhile

Neva Flores 2010

I love the refrain of 'If Only for a While', such a gentle and lovely poem.

Nice Neva...Sounds like the yearnings of a lonely heart.

a tender, wistful homage to eternal love - and longing.
