Pack Up What You'Ve Got And Go - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If you can't give it to me with love,
What is it that you are leaving?
If you can't give it to me with love,
What is it I'm to believe?
If you can't give it to me with love,
Pack up to back up and go.

If you can't give it to me with love,
What is the meaning and purpose?
If you can't give it to me with love,
Everything you've got to give.
Why are we here pretending,
Love is what we do?

If you can't give it to me with love,
What is it that you are leaving?
If you can't give it to me with love,
What is it I'm to believe?
If you can't give it to me with love,
Pack up to back up and go.

If you can't give it to me with love,
Pack up what you've got and go.
You can't...
Masquerade it!
Pack up what you've got and go!
Or give me more of it to know.

I want love.
The kind you have yet to show.
I want that love.
The kind you have yet to show.
You can't masquerade it.
Or think you can charade,
What I've come to know.
