when one loves and it isnt returned.

If Only You Knew


If only you knew

How my heart overflow with love for you

If only you could see

The way you fill my hopes and dreams

You’re the owner of my heart

The ruler supreme.


Even in the dark of night

I’ve only to think of you

To feel your loving light

And from this world I drift

Feeling as if

I’ll never touch the ground again

If only you knew


If only you could guess

How I hear your voice when others speak

For you hold the key to my happiness

And it’s always you my soul seeks


If only you could feel

How your very presence

Has the power to heal

All the wounds inside me

You’ve made me abandon

The pain of yesterday

And you’ve shown me

That the past can no longer

Stand in the way

Of what I hope to achieve

If only you knew.

If only you could realize

The way you’ve shown me

That it’s better to give

Than to take

And whatever I do

I do for your sake.

I’m willing to give you my all

And expect nothing in return

But, oh how I yearn

For you….

If only you knew.

WOW! I hope this goes into a book/etc.. Kath!
This is sad and beautiful and I sure HOPE! this is not from a recent experience either! YOU must be happier than this...I forbid it!
Love this Poem and Your heart!
It reminds me of my daughter Sarah feeling for the man (out of her life almost) and his daughter's lives too, after being together 14 years.. I feel her pain! and I try to help the best I can! I CARE!
Your heart is true and I can feel it!
Do you have a F.B. page (Face Book) ?
P.S. BE HAPPY and don't let someone else rule your heart! Just saying... Let them know...spill it... or share this! Good LUCK! and if not true in the words (you may be going through) GOOD! Glad, it was just well-said words of one's heart! A Universal feeling for sure...

Blessings and Love, Warrior SHEEoxxo

How sad when the sound of yearning streams like a golden thread eluding to the beauty and passion in your words...

Be always safe,

A poem of yearnming for someone to wake up and see the love you have to offer him. Great poetry.
Reviewed by Felix Perry
Often in life we can yearn for the love of someone but to have their true friendship and the depth of committment a real friend offers may be worth more than love itself.

So Eloquent, I say "tell them", before it is too late. Warmth, Carin'
Reviewed by Mark Lichterman
Very lovely, yearning words thought of one not aware, but so deeply, so completely loved. Your words speak elegantly of a deeply held love. Well done, Kathy.
Your friend, Mark
