If I Go One Day Without You

If I go one day without you,
Will I survive the hours
and the chiming of the clock?
If you leave me, and don't look back,
will I not count your leaving
to my bitter cost?

If you stray and wonder
into the arms of another man,
though it break my heart into
a million pieces, I will have you back...
You are the life in which my soul rejoices,
the light it longs to be near.

If you go one day without saying, “Goodbye, ”
I shall love you through my tears
and place a rose upon your pillow
and await your return into my outstretched arms.
The clock will cease to chime...
but in its stillness you will always be mine.

I shall love you no matter,
for I am a captured heart,
A prisoner to your love and beauty.
I am the watchman at your gate
and I will always love you,
whether you leave or whether you stay

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
