Perhaps - Poem by Nicky McNeil

Perhaps if your skin did not feel like soft smooth silk
if your gentle touch did not put currents back in my bones
or if your shining eyes did not put the sky to shame
with color and life so bright, sparkling and clear

If only your voice did not make the heavens open and smile
yes if the sweet vison of you did not shatter my lonliness
as if it were sea waves being smashed against great giant rocks
maybe if your scent did not make the magnolias sob with envy

If all these things were not so then maybe my beautiful lady,
maybe I might not love you so, then I might perhaps, forget you
But when we embrace you become in my arms all these things and more
I know then what love and life are, for me they are only you
