If only, my child, I could send,

A basket filled with love,

And pretty blue forget-me-not’s

To your new home above.

If only I could send a hug

Past every twinkling star,

And a suitcase filled with kisses

Up to heaven, where you are.

If only I could rock you,

As I did not long ago,

And sing you one more lullaby

Before you had to go.

If only’s fill my every thoughts

As my heart aches for you.

With faith, I’ll wait until the time

“If only’s” all come true.
