if i write

if i write these words
will you read them
will you hear with your heart
what they mean
will you know the pain
of this heart which aches
with the loss of your love
and our dreaming
will you feel the wrench
of deep regret
which dwells in the depths
of my soul
will you taste the salt
in the tears which well
in eyes which will always
seek  you
will you touch the screen
and then your heart
will i bind you with my words
or will you close your mind
your heart your soul
untouched by my heart pleading
will you turn away
with your heart now free
to love another
who is not me
yet i must write
this love lost song
i have no choice you see
too late i learned
the lesson that
you are the world to me
