If Only

image

If only I could be,
in the essence
of your voice,
without the longing
of my thoughts.

If only I could be,
aware of this gem,
when my vision closes
to your hallowed light.

If only I could be,
kept in empty abandon
as this long uncertain road
wears beneath my feet.

If only I could just be.
Oh how free
I would truly be.
