If Only

If only one of his dreams
Just one among the many
Could materialize into being

If only one of the things
He’d always imagined himself doing
Would actually happen

If only he could break free
Of the limits of his talents and personality
For just a day

If only he was
Strong enough
Lucky enough
Great enough

But the line
At the “If Only” store
Is really long

And he’s been waiting for decades

If only

He’d gotten there sooner
