If only

If only
By marja blom

If only I could reach the stars
to paint a smile upon its face
to let it smile to every soul
lost in the daunting darkness
 
If only clouds could help these stars
to let it rain drops from the sky
to let it wash down all the sorrow
leaving simply hope to dry
 
If only rays could warm our souls
melting down the icy walls
architecture of our ego
separating you and me
 
when walls fall we will be free
nothing to lean on but each other
turning you and me in we

We can build eternally
 
build a stairway to the stars
to paint a smile upon it's face


If only you could go to writers island to read many other poems

  3. What a nice idea. Your line "the icy walls
    an architecture of our ego" is a bit chilling though (pun intended).
