If – A Poem for Poetry Day



If I knew how to reach you, would I?

Tell you how these years’ have passed

And how my heart aches for a single glance

That hope has never faded here

For time has changed nothing


If I knew how to reach you, could I?

Make up for every mistake at last

And open your heart to one final chance

Resolve every doubt and every fear

For time should be soothing


If I knew how to reach you, should I?

Argue that who we are and were contrast

To prove from here we could advance

If for nothing else, to feel you near

For now, time is everything
