How To Write A Love Song - Poem by Marie Joyce B. Negapatan

As I wake up in the morning,
sip my first cup of coffee
Walk my first step out the door
And say my first hello
Till I lay myself down these empty sheets
with my last yawn in the evening,

only one name lingers my lips.

And it's funny
how I never stop uttering
such beautiful syllables
that makes up a song.

A drum in my chest
A hum to my soul

If only one name could make up a song
then let me write a thousand more

If only love can save the world
then let me write this love song

With only your name
on a sheet of paper.
