if one could only

Who would think two letters
of this tiny word
could flood the heart
strike the soul
with all kinds of desires

Every wish and every hope
as you stand on new years eve
and through days
and through moments
find this word close to you

IF i could turn back time
IF i could make it ryhyme
IF had chosen better
IF i had listened maybe

IF i had gone right instead of left
IF i only heeded the warning
full of power is this phrase
and its lingers till the morning

Its just a word
but how it holds
so many things
for you and i

Its just a word
but everyone i m sure
will utter this
at sometime in life

If the road were brighter
if the nights were softer
if our ship came in
with a cargo of gin

This tiny egg cup size of a word
hold barrels of dreams
gallons of thought
this little word called IF
