I Guessed Your Name

I Guessed Your Name

A Poem by Max

Come here to me, my lovely girl,

I have not seen you here before.

You’ve hair like fire and skin like pearls,

What brings you to this lonely shore?


You’re new to me, and yet I feel

I’ve needed, wanted, all my life

Someone like you, someone to heal

My soul that bears the scars of strife.


They say that you bring Pain with you,

They say you come on seas of tears,

And in my heart I know it’s true,

But I’ll just have to face my fears,


For I heard, too, that you bring Joy,

And all the greatest feelings felt.

It’s surely more than just a ploy,

For you my frozen heart will melt.


How beautiful your hair, like fire

That burns with passion. What a flame,

Fed solely by my heart’s desire

To one day finally be claimed.


I asked your name. You told me not.

You said that I should take a guess,

And though you put me on the spot,

I thought for long, and I confess:


Your name is simple, and yet, no…

It’s higher than the sky above,

It’s deeper than the sea below,

Your name, I think, it must be… Love?
