if you would have let me

i would have loved you
in your darkest hours
when you couldn’t even
look in the mirror
i would have loved you
in the quiet moments
after all the words
had already been spoken
i would have loved you
through your restlessness
and indecision
if you would have let me
i would have loved you
enough for the both of us
but, baby, don’t fear
because i will love you
in another life
when the timing is right
