If

If

 If we could, would we?
If we could wipe the shame that creeps within
Smile with eyes clear and bright
And stand in confidence we did our best
Would we?
If we could clear the debt of guilt
And smile with eyes of peace
Assured we did our best
Would we?
If we could recompense for loves lost
And rest knowing
That love lost is not misplaced
Would we?
We like to think we would, yet
Convinced we can’t
We grow to love the shame
The restless guilt within our souls
We could and can
Be a soul at rest
Standing in confidence
It did its best
