Sacrifices Of The Heart

If I could walk the world to pick every rose
that smiled with the brightest scarlet
and kissed with the softest petals
and lay them at your feet
because your favorite color was red,
I would

If I could swim across the seas
through the wry of waves
and under the anger of storms
against every sting of salt
for one moment with you in my arms
because you needed someone to cry against,
I would

If I could reach above into the Heavens
and grab an angel by the ankles
to drag her beneath the clouds
and strip her of her wings
because you wanted to fly, I would

If I could extend my hands
and reach into the night sky
to pick out the brightest star
and give it to you
because you were in darkness,
I would 

If I could give you every smile
the warmth of every hug
and every sweetest kiss
every moment of my life
because you were lonely, I would

If could rip out my heart whole
with its every drop of blood 
and everlasting love;
with its every shard of dreams
and every breath of life
because I broke yours,

I would.
