If I Could Love (VI)

If I could love,
it would be with you.

With you as my somebody,
it would be easier to give my all to you,
to fall and trust you with body and soul
and hold to you like a tree holds to soil.

It would not be with someone almost there
and not someone close enough,
if I could love,
it would be with you.

I would love you, only you.
