“If Only” By: Rosalyn Levine October 25, 1985
If Only I were young again Instead of old and gray. If Only I knew way back then What I know today.
If Only all life’s lessons I learned from the start. It could have been so easy If Only I were born that smart.
If Only I were able to Right my every wrong I know ‘tis but a fable For no one lives that long.
If Only inner beauty I was wise enough to see. If Only I knew good things Are absolutely free.
Like the glory of sunset, As it fades into the sky. Or the colors of a rainbow, And the pretty birds that fly.
If Only I could capture all the Rapture of first love And enjoy all the wonder of The stars above.
If Only I’d know enough to Love the simple things. My life could have been richer, For so much joy it brings.
But now that I am old. I’ll try not to forget To never say “If Only” ‘cause it isn’t over yet.
