Wow, you make ended love as beautiful as love itself. And that's a tall order! My one minor gripe -- and it's not on the poem -- is the line about hiding the sin and only showing the pure. That's not giving your all to love; it's wearing a convenient mask so you won't be hurt. And believe me, masks are a biiiiiig waste of time! Enjoyed the poem immensely.
never hold on to the blame... leave it out on the curb along with the shame ... "IF ONLY'S" ...only weight down your wings time to look ahead and see what fate and destiny bring ... ------------ YOU KNOW I Love this poem..right?

ButterfliesDC~ 'If Only' ... there wasn't so much truth for many in what you write. Don't hold on to the blame ... it gets too heavy, hon. Let it go ... and catch the flow of hope and let the healing begin. Love ya' ~*Marge*~

Holly~ A true wish from a true heart. I know how that feeling can be, to want to just turn back the hands of time. But the hands are still moveing, and I will safely bet there are better things in store......
