Prose - Would That Be Good Enough?

If I smiled at you
Would that be good enough?
If I stared at you
Would that be good enough
If I approached you
Would that be good enough?
If we hit it off
Would that be good enough?
If I asked for your number
Would that be good enough?
If I called you the next day
Would that be good enough?
If we had a wonderful evening
Would that be good enough?
If I kissed as never before
Would that be good enough?
If we spent days and nights together
Would that be good enough?
If we made passionate love as never before
Would that be good enough?
If you met my parents
Would that be good enough?
If I fell to one knee
Would that be good enough?
If I gave you a ring
Would that be good enough?
If I pledged my life to you
Would that be good enough?
If we were married
Would that be good enough?
If we had beautiful children
Would that be good enough?
If I worked hard at my career
Would that be good enough?
If I took our kids to daycare
Would that be good enough?
If I mowed the lawn and fixed things
Would that be good enough?
If I listened to you
Would that be good enough?
If I remembered our anniversary
Would that be good enough?
If I wanted to make love to you every night
Would that be good enough?
If I wrote you a poem
Would that be good enough?
If I didn't go out with the boys anymore
Would that be good enough?
If I converted to your religion
Would that be good enough?
If I came home every night
Would that be good enough?
If I called you twice a day from a trip
Would that be good enough?
Tell me when I can stop…
I was just wondering….

There is no such thing as "absolutely" in this case, right?

People said it's all about trial and error.

But indeed, obsession able to formed once a while when expectation didn't get right answer.

Love the poem. You wrapped neatly in the end. Have a nice day there. ^_^

@Lord - Your father? Ha... Thank you for your comment. Anything you say is good enough.

@Chrisam01 - Thank you! I was just wondering how much does the woman in this little piece needs for happiness...

@Freya - Hi! We've been talking a lot lately. No absolutes. It really is just intended to open some eyes about how we build from one moment to the next... each good in their own way but for some reason they seem to beg for more... why does their have to be more? Maybe the smile was all that was needed. At that point there was nothing but hope...

@mljdgulley - Yes it is... thank you!

@Verita - Well... you picked the one thing I didn't put on my list! You're something else.... guess that would be good enough. It's nice to know and I like to think I can do that for a woman.... or anybody I encounter. That's almost the best you can do...
