Twenty For You


How far would you got to make someone realize that you love them?
Would you make them realize that they are a gem?
What would you do if you failed in this-would you try again?
Would you rise up and break the failure chain?
Would you go to any length to prove you loved me?
Would your love blossom like a tree?
Do you really need me or do I just dream?
Do you really want me or are things not what they seem?
Am I a fool for loving you more than I hate?
Is it wrong to assume we met by fate?
Did God really make between us this love?
Or did God not give his approval up above?
Do you think of me day or night?
Or am I another chess piece you shift out of your sight?
Are things truly happening the way they are?
Or am I being pushed away because I am below par?
Am I simply jumping to conclusions?
Or are all my insecurities illusions?
An am I asking one too many?
But what I really want to know is in truth can you answer any?
Do you know that for you I care?
Do you understand that I only want to be there?

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
