I Could...

I could write, I could read, I could talk, I could sing
but nothings like seeing your name when my mobile rings.

I could walk, I could run, I could soar when I fly
but none of this can happen if your heart is not close to mine.

I could learn, I could teach, I could listen, I could speak
but who to do these things with, if it is not you with me?

I could smile, I could laugh, but I could sob too
but with whom should I share these emotions if it’s not with you?

I could eat, I could drink, I could rest and fall asleep, 
but thinking of you has made my mind and body weak.

I could lose, I could moan, I could take the greatest fall
but who will be there to help me get up, and to help me stand tall.

I could break and hit the wall, I could stumble, I could crawl
but who will be there to help me get through it all.

I could give up, I could fight, I could give in, I could be strong
but who will be there to tell me if I’m right or wrong.

I could follow, or I could lead, I could believe my dreams or my visions
but who will be there to help make the right decisions.

I could kill, I could steal, I could bleed, I could lie
but it will be in vain, the day we say goodbye.

I could be everything you want me to be, I could do anything you want me to do
but for now I can’t do anything except to tell you that I love you.
