If Only Once

Could you hold me in your arms,

And tell me you loved me?

If only once?

Could you tell me that you cared,

And would never hurt me?

If only once?

Could you tell me that I'm perfect,

And say "it's ok" when I fail?

If only once?

Could you be happy,

And smile when I'm around?

If only once?

Could you be my parents,

And love me with all your heart?

No.

Not even a little.

Not even once.
