If I could have…

If I could have deferred these feelings
to a better time,
when I was more or less sane,
perhaps I would have…
that’s assuming I could have
stopped myself from falling …

I did not plan to fall in love with you,
it never entered my mind
– just happened.
Perhaps it was the sweetness of your lips
or the way you touched me
– like I might break.

If I could have postponed taking that step
into your arms,
perhaps we’d both be here
that’s assuming you would have
waited for me …
