I Could…..

March 3, 2007 at 5:24 pm (Poetry) ()


A little poem I wrote some time ago for someone I cared for. It didn\’t work out the way I would have liked it to at the time but now I know why it didn\’t. It wasn\’t meant to be because there was something, someone else out there for me. I still love this poem though so decided after keeping it to myself for such a long time it was time to share it.


I could…


I could breathe you in and fill my lungs with you, like the heady scent of jasmine on a clear spring evening.

I could drink you in and let you run down my throat, like cold sweet mango nectar on a balmy summers day.

I could wrap my arms around you and quietly listen to your heartbeat, until mine synchronised with yours like a mother carrying her unborn child.

I could stare into your eyes and see the beauty in your soul, sparkling like the stars on a cloudless night.

I could run my fingers through your silky hair and softly trace your lips with my fingertips forgetting there was anything else in the word.

I could kiss your closed eyelids as gently as a butterfly landing on a flower petal and as lightly as a dandelion seed drifting through the air.

I could put my mouth to your ear and whisper my love to you as deeply and as warmly as a purring kitten.

I could hold you so close that I no longer know where I end and you begin.

I could follow you to the end of the earth and leave everything else behind.

I could give you my heart and want for nothing more.

If you wanted me to I could

If you wanted me to I would.


Love Me xxxx

P.S. I took this photo around the time I wrote the poem.

    There’s great imagery and rhythm in these words Fluffy, and the sentiment came straight from the heart. If someone wrote me a poem like that i’d be over the moon.

    There are two most common reasons why we could write like this…
    1. When we are very much in love
    2. When we are in the deepest of sorrows

    Whatever…you have written what is really inside your heart. I can feel it just by reading the poem.

    How is it that without even knowing you, I feel this familiarity in what you have written. This poem passionatly evokes what my heart has felt for the someone I have lost. There were obstacles of distance and circumstance, but like you I would have given up everything for him. I would have traveled to the ends of the earth “if I could”. With your permission I would like to post this on my page, giving credit to you of course, in hopes that he might read it. Please keep writing dear one and I’m secretly wondering if you ever wonder “what if” with your love lost.?? I know I do.

    WOW! What a poem! When I read it my legs grew weak, like a newborn giraffe struggling to its feet.
    You know, I love verse and prose that comes from the heart and it is very apparent that is exactly where this poem derives from.
