And If I Sing You Are My Voice - Poem by gordon nosworthy

and if I sing you are my voice
e.e. cummings

sorry e.e.
I just had to steal your thought
it has as much power as the force
which drives the flower
an insight so insightful that love
leaps from the sing
to the voice
bridges the two
and if I smile
you are my eyes

I am envious
of the road you paved
I walk it hunting for truths and snakes
and if
I love
you are
my heart:
the road is a matter of choice
but when
I walk it
you are my legs
you are my asphalt
you are my bench
and if I live
you are the ground
upon which I strive

and if I drink
you are my thirst
and if I breathe
you are my air
and if I remember
you are my memory

and if I forget
you do not fade away
