What If…

What if Taenggu was my childhood playmate?
What if Taenggu was my best friend in elementary school?
What if Taenggu was my classmate who liked to skip lessons with me?
What if Taenggu was my high school sweetheart?
What if Taenggu was my bandmate who plays the clarinet?
What if Taenggu was my project group mate in university?
What if Taenggu was my roommate if I lived in a hostel?
What if Taenggu was a colleague in my company?
What if Taenggu was my neighbour who lived next door?

What if we were supposed to be born as twins but ended up in a different womb by mistake?
What if we were a pair of love birds in our past lives?
What if we were soulmates waiting to reunite…?

Just a little poem I did 4 months ago but was not published. Re-edited now and decided to publish. Just a little daydream. A little confession. A little rant of what could have been.

A continuation of HIGH SCHOOL GIRL CRUSH – 안경탱 and in response to PHOTO DAY 2017: WHAT IF WE MET WHEN WE WERE YOUNG.

Reminds me of one of my all-time favourite love songs by Taenggu from the earlier days – If (만약에).

TAEYEON (태연) – IF (만약에)

If I were to go,
if I were to go close to you
What would you think?
Just thinking of this breaks my heart
If you were to leave,
if you were to leave my side
How would I ever let you go?
I’m always fearful of this

Because I was like a fool, I could only
look upon you
Because I was afraid of how your heart might change and
we might grow farther apart
I was such a fool, not able to
tell you I loved you
Because I was afraid of the hurt and sadness I
would receive after we meet

If you were to come,
if you were to come closer to me
What would I do?
I really do not know

Because I was like a fool, I could only
look upon you
Because I was afraid of how your heart might change and
we might grow farther apart
I was such a fool, not able to
tell you I loved you
Because I was afraid of the hurt and sadness I
would receive after we meet

I was such a fool, not able to
tell you I loved you
Because I was afraid of the hurt and sadness I
would receive after we meet

Did the lyrics just reveal a clue to me why we haven’t actually met each other yet till today?
