Would You? - Poem by Gaia Rose
What would you do? If I told you my fears,
And I spoke of the sadness ive felt through the years,
Would you give me your time and lend me your ear?
Would you pass me a tissue when I shed a tear?
What would you say? If I was in pain,
And needed somebody to take it away,
Would you be the one who says its ok?
And tells me that things will be better one day?
What would you give? If id lost everything,
And nothing was left but a smile and a wink,
Would you give me the world and all that is yours?
Or would you run and hide behind tightly shut doors?
What would you feel? If I fell to my knees,
And every ounce of strength left had just seeped out of me,
Would you stand by my side and carry me on?
Fight all my battles until I came strong?
Would you say what you mean and mean what you say?
Or lead me to believe that you will be this way?
See I think it’s the latter, you may disagree,
But the one thing that’s different between you and me….
Is I would give you time, and lend you my ear,
Or hand you a tissue when you shed a tear,
If you were in pain id take it away,
Id tell you that things will be better one day.
And when all that’s left is a smile and a wink,
No-ones around, you’ve lost everything,
Id give you the world and all that is mine,
Id push you in front, not leave you behind.
If you fell to your knees, every ounce of strength gone,
Id carry you through until you became strong.
See I say what I mean and I mean what I say,
How it is such a shame we weren’t all made this way.
