IF EVER YOU WANT ME


If ever you
want me

...to go

only tell me so
& I'll go

quietly as the melting snow.

If ever you
don't love me

...anymore

only tell me so
& I'll go

quietly as a fading rainbow

& cry

someplace far from here
(you need never know)

I quiet
as melted snow

...a dead rainbow.

    awww.....that is very sweet. But the way Janice's comment sounds, it sounds like she loves you more than anything. I hope you two are happy with each other.

    I shall always want you
    never to go, never to fade,
    always to hold me,
    warm as Amalfi sun,
    real as a thunderclap,
    strong as a gale of laughter,
    in your net, that catches
    the rocce sporgete
    of my life's avalanches,
    always beside me, my lover,
    my supporter, my inspiration
    and my friend. (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
