Only You

a poem by Elaine E. Howie

Only you could leave an imprint on my heart
Only you could release the sands keeping us apart
Only you could recover the love we shared
Only we two can be so paired

Only you will let rise in me my dreams
Only you can stop it from being what it seems
Only you can bring to me this unending joy
Only you have cherished this favorite toy

I can only hold on to the very thought of you
I can only give you the part of me that’s true
I can only continue this realm with a friend
But only you have been there thru the end
