if he had loved her like he should

if he had loved her like he should,
he thinks she’d still be here —
but he’s as wrong as wrong can be;
we look, but we can never see
the real good, or the fear.

if he had kept his mortal word,
he knows she’d love him still —
but he’s as wrong as wrong can be;
we look, but we can never see
what’s been blurred by our will.

sometimes things move from bad to worse
and, fascinated by the curse,
we watch the water spill
though it’s been damned —
through our soul’s windowsill
so much is crammed —

if he had loved her sweet and true,
he thinks she might have been like you:
but he’s as wrong as wrong can be;
we look, but we can never see
from our poor point of view

if he had loved her, or
if he had loved,

or

if he had
