If I Could


If I could tell her

I’d tell her that her smile is like a sunrise

Lifting the day out of the dark

Ripping daylight from the clenched fists of the night

 

If I could show her

I’d show her how her laughter is like music

Played by the early morning songbirds

Flooding the empty silence of the dark with harmonic grace

 

If I could love her

Like I’ve always loved her, complete and inadequate

I’d wrap my arm around her waist in the infinite darkness

The universe rising and falling with each beat of our sleeping breathing heart

  1. Your wonderful way with words is finding its way into poetry. Beautiful. I love the line: Like I’ve always loved her, complete and inadequate
    I hope to see more poetry from you.
