I Love Ngoc Lan

If only I could

If only I could
I would write your name
across the skies
so all eternity
would know that you
once graced us all
with your smiles,
with your songs.

If only I could
I would petition
to God up high
so He’ll know
how much you’re loved
by those you left behind,
taking away
melodies so young…

If only I could
I would carve your face
on mountains and hills
that reach the sea
as well the sun
and the moon
so all would know
this splendor

that was you!
