If that doesn’t work,
I’ll give you the keys
And open the door to let you in.
When that happens,
I will welcome you in a warm
Embrace, the sun shining on our faces
While the birds sing their songs,
Waiting since forever to do
We will have bike rides at the park,
But you will have to teach me first.
I will give you my trust
That you won’t ever let me fall.
We will watch movies together,
Laugh at all the silly scenes and
Drink our sodas as loud as we can,
Becoming nervous and shy,
As the lovers confess their love
For each other.
You will take care of me whenever
I’m sick, bringing me breakfast in bed.
You will sing me songs, even if
Your voice doesn’t seem to recognize Tone
But hearing the warmth,
And sincerity in it would then make it
The best sound I’ve ever heard, along with
Those times when you say my name.
And when you laugh.
We will watch the sunset together
And as we revel at how marvelous
The orange sky is, we will wonder
How we found each other and how
We plan to be together.
But until someone would come
To scale these walls or go find the key,
Like a needle in the haystack, I will stay
In my safe place, wondering what
Or who Love is, the one people
Write about. I will be here, unscathed
But not perfectly whole.
