If I could

If I could

A Poem by Ivan Mauricio Urrego

If time could be contained

or the hour-glass detained,

and day was not the waking time

and night had not a rhyme,

if life was but a frozen instant

--and death was not the sum of days

I could count to love you, a thousand  loving ways.


If years could be count in praise

more or so to your melodic voice and gaze,

twenty decades to your look, to your face

that makes simplicity a grace,

a hundred would go to adore each breast

but a thousand more to the rest, 

then a millennia to every part

and all ages to your heart.
