Can't Put the Pen Down…

I Am Only One


I would build a house for you
with love and my bare hands.
One that held you tenderly,
one that could withstand
the wind and rain and sun.
But I am only one.

I’d turn back the clock for you
to any time you say
to live inside the sweeter life
that came before the pain.
Before doubt had begun
But I am only one.

I would make your dreams real.
I’d spin a world so right.
Where every perfect morning
follows every perfect night
and all the wars are won.
But I am only one.

Yes I am only one, but we are two
and there’s no limit to what two can do.
