If only

 

If only
we
could

if only
we
would

clasp
time in a
sieve

strain what
is
good

drain what
is
not

benefits
remembered

misdeeds
forgot
 
*
 
Each
pledge
rue tested

to keep
or let
go

each love
true
tested

to prove
it
is so

true loves
grip
true

heartbreaks
slip
through

 
*
 
Fair
friends
set fast

traducers
let
pass

if only
we
could

if only
we
would

such tempests
belie

we could
live in the
favor

never would
we
waver

O the times
we would
savor

 
*
 
If only
we
would

if only
we
could

clasp
time in a
sieve

Oh how
we would
live

in reason
and
rhyme

past
treason
of time

and fear
not
to die

and fear
not
to die
