If - Poem by Tess Rockenstire
If April brings rain,
And May brings flowers
So as the smile that comes from you.
That’s prettier than the flowers
That bloom in June.
If I am a spectator
In what arena would you be?
And what would you bring
To my lovely eyes to see?
If I’m a traveler
And I need a place to stay
Would it be a bed with spectacular view?
Or would you open your arms for me to lay.
If I’m a queen would you be my king?
What kingdom would you rule?
But I would like you to be
my king with wisdom and ten golden rules.
If I love you forever
Will you love me in return?
Don’t tell me it’s sojourn,
Don’t give me alibis
Just say good bye
Even though you’re breaking me apart.
Don’t weep for me, if I die tomorrow,
I beg you to take away your sorrow.
Will you bring a memorial offering to my grave?
I ask you, all my friends, when I’m gone; behave.
