If

If my words have brought you pain
Made your heart’s tears fall like rain

If my words have been a knife
And sliced the joy out of your life

If my words have brought you sorrow
Cut me out of each tomorrow

Oh, If I knew that this were true
I swear I’d make it up to you

But I know that you won’t confess
You will act strong just to impress

So, I’m not sure just what to say
To make it sweet like yesterday

Maybe this truth will touch your heart
I stopped that love for you to start

To be unfaithful will not do
Not for me and not for you

So, take my hand and be my friend
To this kind of love, there is no end.

Eileen Manassian Ghali
