Love Song

This is the other poem I mentioned the other day. I won my local library's poetry contest with this one. I'm really looking forward to writing some more poetry for this year's contest. Now I'm competing in the adult category, gulp.






Love Song
Annie Louise Twitchell

I could write you a love song
to tell how much I care,
or we could count the stars
strewn across the evening sky.
We could find the constellations,
each one painting a picture,
and wish upon a shooting star.

I could write you a love song
to tell how much I care,
or I could keep you safe
from the demons inside.
I could stay with you
through the hardest times,
if only you will let me.

I could write you a love song
to tell how much I care,
or we could watch the moon
rise serenely into the starry sky.
Then when she sets we could
sleep the night away in peace,
without the fear of being alone.

I could write you a love song
to tell how much I care,
or sit with you during the
sunrise of a brand new day.
We could watch the world
wake up, and resume the
chaos and busyness of life.

I would write you a love song
to tell how much I care,
but I can't express myself
with any words I've found.
I can only show you,
and trust that is enough.
I can only show you, dear one.

Is that enough?
