There is nothing I would rather do
Than be there talking to you
I wish I knew how hard it would be
To leave without getting your name
Without giving you mine
Without those wonderful memories
To remember you by
If only I knew

Everytime that I saw you
I didn't know what to do
There is so much that I wanted to say
But I was afraid to get to know you
I knew it would be to hard to leave
Since I was leaving that next day
So I just sat by my window and hoped I would see you again someday
If only I knew

You didn't know that I saw you there
Until I looked up at you and you looked at me
I'll never forget that look in your eyes
I knew right then that I was wrong
And that I just made things worse
But now I can't do anything
Except leave you in my past
If only I knew

If only I knew what we would go through
I would have done everything different
If only I knew how hard it would be
To leave without getting your name
Without giving you mine
Without those wonderful memories
To remember you by
If only I knew

"If only I knew," hindsight can kill us sometime by the way it clarifies our mistakes or lost opportunities. I really like the thoughts and feelings you express in your poetry. They are honest, emotional and are situation we all experience at one time or another.
I am new at AC too, but welcome, it seems to be one of the best sites around. iblieve
