If only I could have captured your smile

Carried it in my pocket

Kept it with me for all time

 

If only I could remember the words

To the song you sang

The rainy day we met

 

If only I could find the pictures

The ones you mailed to me

When your family moved away

 

If only I could have see your eyes

Wiped away the tears you were crying

As you sat there alone

 

If only I had known earlier

I could have stopped you

And taken you away

 

If only I hadn't been so late

To try to find you

To say I love you

 

If only you were still alive

I could have the chance to say

I love you and always will

If only I could have said good-bye
