If Only

If Only

If I would have stopped to see
    what she was thinking.
If I would have cared for
    what she was seeing.
If I would have jumped
    to meet her where she stood.
If I would have loved her
    for what she found lacking in me.
If I would have noticed
    what she noticed in me.
If I had paid attention to anything.
It would have mattered to her
    and not ruined me.
