If Ever You Want Me - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

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
