If For Just One Moment

If for just one moment in time
I had your heart and you had mine
Would I say you were heaven sent?
Or worth a pain filled moment
Would I wish to hold you near?
Or would I have fled away in fear
Would I have said yes love me?
Or refused the touch of you totally?

I believe you are worth any sacrifice
Iíd willingly submit, pay any price
This love is true it fills my heart
Which silently started to fall apart
Before your eyes caressed my face
I hadnít experienced loveís pure grace
But now I know loveís tender touch
And that Iíd miss you much too much

If I knew that this was all we had
Would I have wasted it being sad?
Or wouldnít I rather turn the key
Releasing our love, setting it free
Do you think Iíd refuse our chance?
To join together in fires dance
Wouldnít you rather I gave us this
A single instance of utter bliss

I know that you are my destiny
As I belong to you, you do to me
There isnít a doubt in my mind
That if I looked within I would find
Your name marked all through me
A sign saying Iím yours completely
No matter how long, we have now
Weíll get by some way some how

Mushy,  love the title....I think I have
used very similar words myself....Sort of
goes hand in hand with "If Only".....

Those nastly little "IF" critters....what
would we do IF we didn't have them???

If just for a moment of trace
as fingers touch a gentle face
when kisses shared are of just two
Just only we...me and just you..

If just for each other one glance
would love fall or have just one chance
as lips brush from a warm embrace
IF just....only within this place

See what you made me do....

Excellent poetry darling girl....you always
pack a punch in your purse of poetic parcels.

I feel as if you wrote about David and me...but I know that you didn't...

This is a lovely poem, Marsha...your poetry keeps getting better and better.

Marsha,
you have distilled the essence of poetry into droplets of wonder. Gorgeous!

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

marsha,

my sweet sis...this is truly one of your
finest, beautiful flow and the message
touched my heart more than I can say.
I hope all your dreams come true and you
get all you deserve in life and love. I
can't think of anyone who deserves it more.
I love you!

Love,
your lil sis,
Amy
xoxo

"you can't stop
the rain
from pouring down
can't stop the
world from turning 'round
can't stop me from
loving you
no matter
what you do"

Funny thing about that destiny, huh ?
It just always seems to take us where we're supposed to be~
