if I only knew

if I only knew
Why would I come to ask you
Await my deliberations will you
I shall start afresh anew

If only I knew
why should I divulge to you
just for a comments too few

what ails me to reach my goal
If only I knew
why would I ask you

Well stand by as you say
I must address myself
God pray

If only I knew
I'd love to share with you
what I'd love to do
to have to give to share

If only I knew

The lips would part
like two lips as you show
so beautifully

Yes but only If I knew
what you want to know
about me

if I only knew
Yes, If only
I knew .....

i believe through oversight you have missed the "I" in the concluding verse Lovedly...I note that you have adopted a different style...good to know that..


raj (sublime_ocean)

how sweetly you convey and silently too
no wonder the world loves poets like you
when are you coming again to Usa or Canada
would love to meet you
