If I told you the simple joys of life I have been through
Would you listen to me with that sparkle in your eye?
If I told you all the crazy things I have done,
Would you whisper my name that will make me feel young again?
If I told you all the sorrows of my heart,
Would you give me your shoulder to cry on?
If I told you all the fears gripping me at this time,
Would you comfort me with a warm hug which will make me feel safe?
If I told you all the abuses that I have been through
Would you listen to me without finding fault or judging me?
If I shared my pains and aches of my everyday life
Would you ease it with an understanding smile?
If I spoke out loud my innermost fears of uncertainity,
Would you tell me that I am safe with you forever?
If I shared my dreams, hopes and my childish desires
Would you listen without prejudice and help me find myself?
And If I shed a tear or two, while I spoke to you,
Would you value each drop and wipe it off with reassurance of Love?
If my heart skips a beat due to anxiety and restlessness,
Would you give me that look, that will pacify the core of my being?
And when I am down in the dumps, looking for a smile,
Would you give me that deep slow laugh, which can calm me down?
If I told you all about the ghosts in my mind and my unfounded fears
Would you wipe them out with your confidence in me?
If I told you how much I love you
Would you believe me without an iota of doubt?
If only I told you…..
