Not As If Yours

The kiss, a kiss that never could be cared for
Kindness, tender kindness ill-prepared for

Power, power not to be believed in
The love, a love no child could be conceived in

Times shared, not of time worth time to keep as
Dreams, dream not of nights slept through to sleep as

The truth of it, truth one dares not to speak to
Hope, a hope the heart fails strength to seek to

The touch, a touch one not to get involved with
The future, future never once resolved with
