"If Only I Could Touch Again"

If Only I Could Touch Again, just maybe a new life could possibly begin, but my wounds are wide open, my soul frozen in sin.

     If Only I Could Touch Again, my mind, my body, my spirt  just might begin to mend, but my desires are self-centered, a prurient imagination to the bitter end.

     If Only I Could Touch Again, my hopes, my dreams, God's Love, a self-fulfilling prophecy, this could never happen to me, I'm a martyr, chemically dependent, love is denied, my attitude is hopeless, my choice is abuse, destruction & oblivion,
                                           If Only I Could Touch Again...
