1. I would worship you every morning
Before the sun peeks its head
Over the horizon, my mouth
Tracing poems across the gold
Of your skin, just so you could
Always start the day with my love
Etched across you, so when you walk
The streets, no one could see you
Without also seeing my love,
Enveloping you in lights.
2. I would climb to the highest peak
The world has seen, if only to scream
Your name once I reach the summit,
Scream it until my throat freezes
And even then, I will find ways
To communicate to the heavens
That I love you; how, like the moon,
I illuminate your darkness,
So you may be resplendent
Far, far from my reaches.
3. I would make you rest your head on my lap
On days when you feel you have
No other way but out, I will lightly
Stroke the edges of your face, tell you
To look up at me. For no words
In any language could ever describe
Your inherent value in this universe.
The only way to show you this
Is for you to look into my eyes.
(That is, if only you were mine.)
