If only, if only.

If only those eyes could flutter open

If only those lips could mumble a sound.

If only those ears could hear me laugh.


If only the hands of time could be retraced back.

Then we could be a suckling again.


She was taken by surprise 

She could not tell when she was going.


If only she had stayed.


DEATH be not proud.

For you have done thy worst.

If only she could break free from the depth of exile. 

But its impossible,

For she is forever shut in the catacomb.
