If I? ? ?

If I... called out your name
would you look my way
or avoid me with shame?

If I... sent you a smile
would your heart hold it dear
or reject it with denial?

If I... gave you a glance
would it stir lost emotions
or would your defenses enhance?

If I... held out my hand
would you remember its touch
or would you spit in the sand?

If I... dropped dead tomorrow
would it put you at ease
or feel just a 'wee-bit' of sorrow?

    the heart needs
    and needs
    and lucky the soul
    who finds a way
    to give
    but if not
    then the poet
    still must survive
    still must write
    the secret messages of the soul
    a fine poem
