All I Need


I'm not asking you to meet everyday
I could try & bare
When you are away
All I need is just some care

All I need is not to feel so much alone
All I need is a tender heart not hard as stone
All I need is to hear your voice on the phone

All I need is to know that you're fine
All I need is to know that you're mine
All I need is to know that I'm in your heart
Even If we are going to stay for so long apart

I'm not asking you to count every dropp of water in the rain!
All I need is to stop making me feel this pain
I'm not asking you to count every particle of sand on the shore!
All I need is to know that you Love me from your very inner core
All I need is to know that I'm the only one that you adore

I'm not asking you to make the birds swim and make the fish fly!
All I need is not to hear the word 'Goodbye '
I'm not asking you to climb a mountain so high!
Nor am I asking you to swim across the deepest sea!
All I need is to show me that you love me

I'm not asking you to walk a thousand mile!
All I need is a simple smile
I'm not asking you to make the trees blue!
All I need is to know that you're true

I'm not asking you for a diamond ring!
All I need is a much humble thing
All I need is your attention
All I need is affection

I'm not asking you for a princess dress!
All I need is something... much much less
All I need is a gentle caress

I'm not asking you for a castle of gold!
I'm not asking you for more than you could afford!
All I need is not to feel ignored
All I need is not to feel that you're bored
All I need is a kind word

I'm not asking you to make the year 14 months!
Nor am I asking you to make the week 8 days!
I'm not asking you to make the sun rise from the west!
All I need is to sleep on your chest
To hear your heart beat
All I need is to feel complete

AM I ASKING TOO MUCH? ? !

    All I need is to show me that you love me
    The essence of all your needs is concentrated in the above line and that's your right which should be given to you. You have beautifully described it. (Report) Reply

    miss anonymous..your lingual skills are beyond speech BUT..i really have a small crticism; your point was clear from the begining of the poem and yet you kept explaining it in detail without switching to the next point..what we say in arabic: '5air al kalam ma kal wa dal' (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
