Many times in my life I have thought about what love is, and if I am able to love someone truly, for who they are. With all their imperfections. Love starts with ourselves, and accepting who we are, so I guess, it comes down to loving yourself before. A reflection upon, if I am actually able to really, truly love someone else, and myself...


If I could love - I’d love you till death - look into your eyes - drown in their abyss
If I could love - you’d be the one - I would admire - you’d be my sun
If I could love - you’d be my ocean - moon rising surely - ever in motion
If I could love - we’d melt together - like a living poem - forever and ever

If I could love - I’d rise from the dark - let go of my shadows and re-enter the heart
Leave solitude behind - say no goodbyes - then I could love and we’d fly together
Under the blue skies - light as a feather
If I could love - I’d hold you tight - fall into your arms - cry like a child
If I could love - you’d be the one - I’d tell all my secrets to - before I’m gone
If I could love - my life would flourish - the intrinsic poison - could no longer be nourished
If I could love - life would be real and all my scratches could slowly heal

If I could love - move close in the low lights - we’d hold hands and maybe share a dance
Should we be - bound and free - I could break away and steal a kiss
From a cherry blossom tree place it on your lips

If I could love - my heart would be open - even when it’s painful it wouldn’t close down
If I could love - the ugly and the pretty - I’d be ready for life as it is
lf i could love life as it is - lf i could love life as it is...
