    IF ...
    i can take away your tears
    dry your eyes
    bottle your fears
    and take away the lies....
    then i will

    IF.....
    i can wipe
    your sweating brow
    calm your beating heart
    for i know how
    i will

    IF.......
    kiss your pain away
    make the sun shine
    through your cloudy day
    then i will

    IF....
    i could redo it
    all again
    take you back
    to the biginning
    i will

    IF......
    i could
    i would
    if i want
    then i should
    If you allow
    then it shall be
    how may i
    just tell me please
    can i sooth
    your aching being
    fix all the broken things

    i want to try
    i really want to
    if you allow
    then i shall do......

    IF

    if i...

    if i had it within my power
    to correct mistakes done yesterday
    i'd take away the pain i caused
    ...the tears you've shed along the way

    if i could straighten the path i've taken
    trying to get to where i am
    i'd thank that KIND SIR for his lesson
    saying to her; PLEASE, FORGIVE ME, MA'AM

    if i could step back into those shoes
    ...retake the steps i took before
    i'd step away from boyish games
    offering my love...and so much more

    if i caused that one to stray
    who vowed to follow wherever i'd lead
    i apologize for my errant ways
    saying; TO YOUR SOUL, ALONE, GIVE HEED

    if i could.

    NICE FLOW, Buttercup, BUT THERE ARE TOO MANY IFs IN THE WORLD TO WORRY ABOUT...just do it.:)

    peace&many blessings.

    THEN NO MORE....

    no more ifs
    should'ves
    could'ves
    would'ves
    no more wondering about when
    no more sorrowful thinking
    for now true love must begin
    no more wondering if those tears
    are tears of sorrow and grief
    no more will your heart race
    unless it's beating for me
    no longer will the sweat on your brow
    appear because of pain
    no longer will you hold your head down
    no longer will you be the blame
    it's all about this
    about what is now
    it's all about the present
    for it's the best gift i've found
    it's for you
    my heart
    my soul
    it's only for you
    so take and behold

    no more should'ves
    could'ves
    would'ves
    no more wondering when

    no more alone
    no more lonely
