    If I told you that I'm sorry
    Can you love me, 'til I die
    If I told you that I hate you
    Could you look me in the eye?

    If I'm angry on the inside
    Will you calm me with a smile
    Call me baby, say you love me
    and come sit and talk awhile?

    If you told me that you love me
    With no doubt or reason why
    Fight the fire, burning constant
    'Til my tears have all run dry

    If you told me, that you're sorry
    I will love you, 'til you die
    If you told me, that you hate me
    I will look you in the eye

    If I told you.........

    Wouldn't it be something to know how another would react before you told them the truth? This piece makes me think of some deep questions, I'm into it.

    once again that two letter word
    I-F (if) indeed plays a powerful role
    in our life at times
    feeling your flow
    keep the flow coming
    Peace~N~Love
