I Won`t Tell You 'No'

If once you want to talk
Or to stay in silence,
In the old park to walk
Or to lay out a patience,
To make a true confession
Or to keep it all in secret,
To catch the sweet emotion
Or abt something to regret,
To watch stars in the sky
Or to hold a hopeless cry,
To laugh like mad
Or to stay ill in the bed,
To eat a dozen cakes
Or to make silly mistakes,
To tell whole true
Or to lie all through,
To discover a continent
Or to treat your patient,
To live through a grief
Or to share one`s relief,
To grow old together
Or to stay young forever,
To change your mood from wild,
To make me a mom of your child,
If to be washed off, only with one wave,
Me wordless at your dad`s grave,
All together, all fifty-fifty,
Why that isn`t our destiny?

If once you want anything of this
Just reach me with your soul`s bliss,
To make of us two heaven birds,
Don`t care abt dates and seasons,
But the only thing for you to know,
No matter how far you go
And for whom is your bow
Find me! I won`t tell you 'no'

    abt=about?

    my favorite lines:
    To eat a dozen cakes
    Or to make silly mistakes, ............................. mostly i like this because i like cake!

    more favorites:

    To grow old together
    Or to stay young forever,
    To change your mood from wild,
    To make me a mom of your child, .................... so it that YOU in the poem and the photo (with baby!) ? ?

    i liked all of the Ors. and how you led up to the last four lines, ending with 'the title'.

    but bow? cupid's bow? then it would rhyme with know and indicate some romance for 'someone'. otherwise i am tempted to read bow as in the actor took a bow at the end of her performance;
    then it would not rhyme so well with 'know', but it still might fulfill what you are saying (even though i'm not sure what you are saying) .

    thanks for sharing. bri :)

    The best line is the one...
    'To make me a mom of your child...'
    This means a real love
    To the one you love...

    Fine rythmic flow, emergent soft thoughts and very sincere sentiments, true love. [I advise you not to be so good indeed, see Nivdetta Bagchi, a bit of a fighter], no offence inteded though. Lovely piece. Enjoyed reading it.10+++

    Hello Emma,

    This is a gem of a find! I love the rolling flow of this poem and well as the carefully constructed wording, the rhyme is good in the most part as well. The poem builds to a great crescendo and the final line hits home the greatly grafted message you have penned. Doesn't matter where you are or what you are doing, if they open up and share their soul, they'll always find you beside them. Add a smile to the whole feeling of the poem because of the sentiments you build up, seemingly explodes with a mutual respect and love at the end.

    Superb Emma, keep on doing what you do best!

    Dale :)
