If Only

You promised forever
only hours before you
suddenly just chose to drive away.
But then you made so very many
promises along the way
that never came to be.

I changed because of you,
and just for your sake too.
I guess these things
just canít be helped sometimes.
But now I simply need
to find myself right here again -
the one that always knew
just what to do,
and begin to make things
right again for me.
(Iíve done it for so many others.
Ssurely now, I must know how
to do it for myself.)

If only, if only,
this moment comes soon -
for memories blossom again
and better days
lie just around
the rainbow bend for me...
