If only I’d known

If only I’d known…
That this was the last time we’d meet,
I would have stopped the break of dawn.
And stopped the sun from setting.

If only I’d known
That I wouldn’t ever see you again,
I would have framed a picture of you within,
To end my suffering, to end my pain.

If only I’d known,
That this was the last time I would sit by your side,
I would have told you how much I loved you,
Keeping other things aside.

If only I’d known,
That we would never hold hands again
I would have held them strong,
And never let anything go wrong.

If only I’d known,
That you would always stand by my side,
I would have fought the world for you,
Breaking all the walls through.

If only I’d known,
That your love was true
If only I’d known that you would come back soon,
I would have waited for you to come by.

If only I’d known any of this
That you were what I was breathing for,
I would have breathed my last for you,
Seen you enough and bid you adieu,
While all I can do now,
Is sit here…
… and wait.
