If Only...

If only I had wings,
I would stretch them and fly,
fly away across the horizon,
rest only when I have soared high.

If only I had a chance,
I would escape and meet my mate,
I'm enwrapped with loneliness,
not knowing what is in fate?

If only I had a single wish,
I would embrace my love,
who is away in distant shores,
be with him and sit pretty as a dove.

If only I had the bounty of love,
I would spread it amongst those,
who are down-trodden, without a shoulder to lean on
or hug someone close.

If only I had the power
to see tomorrow I would erase,
all events that threaten the prosperity
and well-being of the human race.

If only I had a magical wand
to turn someone's wish true,
I would touch the life of a child,
fill it with happiness and bid his unhappiness adieu.

If only I had the grace
to live a life till eternity,
I would pray to God to let me chant
HIS name in his vicinity.

If only I had the power
to create my own speech,
I would fill it with the name of God
and spread it beyond the realms of reach.

If only, oh lord there are
no ends to our desires and wants,
all I want is a place by your feet,
your love and grace is all what the heart longs for..!
