if i could take it back… 

If ever I knew love, I let it go

Turned my back, walked away, if only in my mind

A burden I can’t bear, a longing I don’t share 

If ever I knew love, I didn’t feel it 

There is a certain pleasure in the free fall, once words are spoken that are true 

The look in the eye,  tear  on cheek… 

If ever I proclaimed true love, it was never meant for you 

Some are made with tender hearts,  yours, just  for the taking

Some are made with hearts of stone, who enjoy the other’s waiting

As for me,  I am neither that weak, nor am I that strong 

If ever I thought I knew true love, I knew it not till it was gone
