If only I could tell the sun to stand still to stall the date of your going, I will;
If only I could tell the wind to stop moving that not a thing shall be able to fly, I will;
If only I could turn every deserted place a green pasture so you would be exploring no more, I will;
If only I could make every insult to sound like a joke so that one won't be hurt but laugh, I will;
If only I could turn my every thought into an immortal song that without trending you'd be inspired to sing, I will;
If only I could literally show how much love I have for you by physically opening my heart, I will;
I could only wish: IF ONLY – because it will never will.
Yet, the most I can do is wish:
That I can hold back my tears at the date of your going;
That the wind shall be its fairest for you to have a safe flight;
That the place you are heading is the greenest of the pastures anyone would hope to settle;
That you will be spared of any kind of mockery and insult from a discriminating crowd;
That you'll be free from stress, fatigue, and discomfort;
That mine thoughts that you ignored maybe a line of your favourite song;
That the heart of the one you will find to love shall have a love, so true, like this love I have for you;
Finally, if I shall be lucky to reach my old age, I hope to have the same consciousness even in my deathbed, that before giving up my ghost, I still can make a wish – a wish that you never had to go so that I would had spent a lifetime with you . .... ...

the sentiment of a lover when true love has to be compromised in paving way to a beloved's call of fortune
