All I offer

Posted: December 27, 2011 in Uncategorized

I don’t want to give you
a piece of the moon
Or swim across the oceans and lakes
to prove my love.
I don’t feel like climbing
the highest mountains or
bottling sunsets.
It’s too much work.
I can’t make promises about us,
the heavens and happiness.
I might not be able to keep them..
Anyway …
I’d be doing it all for my ego.
I just want you to believe me
when I say I do love you

    This is so sweet. It kind of reminds me of Shakespeare’s Sonnet “My mistress’s eyes are not like the Sun”. Excellent Write!

    Hehe, you’re right. Why bother to compare love with things? Just say it and prove it. Love your thoughts. 🙂
    happy rally.
