About the Poem

This poem was written when I was not feeling my best. I have always longed for a person to say these things to me and mean them. I am a terribly romantic person, and have often fantasized about people saying and doing things that I long to have done.

It may seem strange, but when one wants something so much it becomes an obsession almost. I am surrounded by loved ones and friends, yet often times I feel alone, so this poem is mostly saying what I long to hear.

I Could

I could write you a letter,
But what would it say?
Could it make things better?
Would it make everything okay?

I could write you a song,
Full of love hope and grace.
Would you tell me what went wrong?
Could you say it to my face?

I could make a telephone call,
And listen as you cried
But I would not let you fall,
And if you did, we'd both know I tried.

I could make the world go away
But would that be what you like?
You would miss the golden sunrays
You would miss the moonlight.

I could stop all this pain
Bring it all to an end
The tears would fall like rain
On the shoulder of a dear friend.
