If You Were A Poem

Source

A hopelessly romantic love song.


If you were a song I'd sing it

until you became a Grammy,

sharing all our love did,

with a couple grandkids,

in the style of

Sinatra or Sammy.



If you were a note,

you'd wouldn't be

flat or sharp,

oh, so lovely you'd sail

to the top of the charts

the world's finest soprano

blessing listeners hearts


hitting the highest string

stretched out on the

end of a harp.



Chorus-



But you are a girl,

with most perfect lips

and I'm just a dreamer

whose run out of scripts..

seems my talents fall short

when you come into view,

and this song is no tribute

to the beauty of you.



My pen will not blend

with thoughts in my head,

and my guitar falls silent

strummed by fingers of lead,

my lyrics...atmospheric.

are all lost in space..

while I'm trying to place

love for me on your face.



If you were a poem

I would spend all my days,

reading only one work

touring endless cafes,

folks would run for the door

at my tedious praise,

of what they'd all heard before,

while they sipped their lattes.



Perhaps I should paint you,

but could I curb my desire

With you posing for me

setting my canvas on fire

seems I've run out of ways

to portray how you'll be.

my Mona lisa..

my Wordsworth

love's sweetest symphony

Chorus-


Because you're are a girl,

with the most perfect lips

and I'm just a dreamer

whose run out of scripts

seems my talents fall short

when you come into view,

and this song is no tribute

to the beauty of you.

but it's all I can offer

just to say I love you.
