If Only We Knew

.

.

If I could edit clips of life,

I'd take all the moments where we were together

Assemble them all in one large file

And it would warm me in stormy weather.

.

Those few moments, some clear, some not,

Are so precious, close to my heart.

Although in context they were benign

Just being around you makes me not want to part.

.

You are what makes me ecstatic to wake,

And whenever I'm sad, I imagine your eyes.

You're what makes tomorrow better than today

And yet, I wonder: Do you even realize?

.

Do you know that you mke me able to fly?

Are you aware that I do love you?

Will you ever be aware of what I dream?

The real question is, Do you love me too?

.

What makes me think you reciprocate?

Just fleeting glances across crowded rooms

And words from someone who's on my side

I'm reluctant to believe, hope creates many dooms.

.

We rarely talk, but in those few times

The only one I see is you.

Once the conditional, twice the reverse,

But now it is both: If Only We Knew
