If I Asked - Poem by MacGregor Tagliaferro

If I Asked

If I asked you to be all mine
What would you say
Would you say that would be right fine
Would you say nay

If I asked you to sleep with me
Would you say yes
Would you laugh so hysterically
Or cry no less

If I asked to be your lover
Would you say oui
Would you run so fast for cover
Or git weepy

If I asked you for forever
Would you believe
Would you think I was so clever
Or would you leave

If I asked for your heart and soul
Would you give it
Would you be the rock to my roll
Without a fit

If I asked you to hold me tight
Would you say no
Would it give you such a big fright
And would you go

If I asked to be your only
Would you comply
Would you leave me sad and lonely
Or would you cry

If I asked to be your cowboy
Would you say please
Would you leap and dance with great joy
Or would you tease

If I asked you to be my girl
Would you refuse
Would you just let me twist and twirl
And cut me loose

If I asked to be in your dreams
Would you agree
Would you include me in your schemes
And never flee

If I asked you to complete me
If it happened
Would you be there so completely
Beyond the end

If I asked all of this and more
What would you say
What would you do
Would you be all mine to adore
Would you say yay
Would you be true
Would you say yes for evermore.
