If I Were All I Could Be

If I were the sun I would brighten your days
If I were the moon I would lighten your nights

If I were the stars I would make your wishes come true
If I were the heavens I would hear your silent prayers

If I were the weeping willow I would cry , so you wouldn't
If I were the earth,  I would give you a world of hope

If I were the clouds, I would carry your darkest days
If I were the rain, I would  wash away your pain

If I were the ocean I would be a current of change
If I were the wind I would listen to your whispers

If I were the fire, I would ignite your inner desires
If I were the shadows, I would always walk with light

If I were the seeds of love, I would help you grow
If I were the rose, I would give you my heart

  5. Truedessa, I think this is one of my favorite poems of yours. Very touching really. The last stanza is lovely. I really like "If I were the rose, I would give you my heart." Now THAT really moves me.
