the loving heart

If I were a rose that was red in your garden
I’d perfume the sill on your window of life and

If I were the breeze I would blow oh so gently
to dry every tear and hug you so tenderly

If I were a cloud I would reach deep within
and shower you with kisses of dewy sweet rain

If I were a bird of the earth, sky and sea
I would sing you my rainbows of sweet melody

If I were a tree, all my leaves would be yours
I would shelter your heart in the midst of the storm

If I were the sea and my waves full and cool
from my depths I’d yield plenty to nourish your soul

If I was the road that you’d travelled so long
I’d guard you and guide you from nighttime til dawn

If I were the song that your heart had stopped singing
I’d wait and I’d listen to hear what your fearing

If I were an angel I’d melt every fear
I would sink every darkness that ever came near

If I were the essence of all that love is
I would bottle myself and catch every last tear

If I were the moon and you were night’s sky
I’d light up each star to make the world shine
