If

If you would have embodied
a fraction of me
and I would have imbibed
a portion of you
we could have filled up the voids in each other
and then our love would have been whole

If you would have caressed
some of my cracks
and I would have eased
some of your sores
we could have healed all of our wounds
and then our love would have been painless

If you would have tried
a little bit more
and I would have strived
a little bit harder
we could have calmed the storms inside us
and then our love would have been benign

If you would have kissed me
a little longer
and I would have embraced you
a little tighter
we could have endured the assaults of time
and then our love would have been eternal

If you would have given up
some “I” from yourself
and I would have given up
some “me” from myself
we could have created a world of “us”
and then our love would have been divine.

        1. Heyyy…yes…I was traveling the whole night. It’s an overnight journey from my parents’ place to the place where I stay and the phone network was pathetic all through the journey. I saw your posts but couldn’t take time to go through them Darren. I am going to read them today for sure πŸ™‚
