If I Were You ©

Nat Hall
Sandwick, Shetland
1996

If I were you,
I'd spend whole days
beneath those trees;
wrapped in that love to endure
time - this autumn breeze.
If I were you,
I'd let this smile
flowing downhill;
all that goodness that is shining
...so warm to feel.
If I were you,
I'd put aside
all this sadness;
look around you,
the world is there
in its greatness.
If I were you,
I'd embrace life
and touch the sky.
...But I'm not you,
closed are my eyes, silly and shy.
To see that world -
to share the fruit of happiness;
lost in the wind my words
search yours - flee emptiness.
If only you could
walk across the looking glass,
to foin my hands - to feel
my pain and heal my heart.
