If You Were To Ask Me

If You Were To Ask Me

A Poem by Beautiful Intentions


She had once compared herself
To an ordinary leaf
As if this magnificient creature
Could never see what I see
Just how she so captives
In a silhouette of dancing moonbeams
Words rendering breathlessness
Every time that she speaks
Forgetting of the warmth
The flutters of love that she brings
As humbled as the giving servant
Who takes of nothing
So if she is but a leaf
Than leaves there will forever be
Sprinkling the earth in majestic colours
And filling the trees
Or one lone falling goddess
Caught on a breeze
Circling in joyous motions
About uplifted feet
Beautiful she is for the selfless tears
She has cried
For the heart so enveloping
She fits the world inside
So if she is but a leaf
Than she is a garden
As far as the eye can see
Enchanting a wayward spirit
With a glimpse of fulfilled dreams
Where laughter flickers like fireflies
In loving blue depths
And the radiant company
Adds a hint of bounce to each step
Where the darkness never once
Losses sight of the light
She the eternal flame that ever burns
Through the chill of the night
So if she is but a leaf
Than upon a faeries bed
Is where I sleep
Wrapped within the fragrance of her sweet embrace
At her side I will always be
Counting the seconds towards coming days
When she will find the courage to ask of me
Of all the little splendid things
That I have seen
For in that fleeting moment
Soft lips would brush across mine
For in that fleeting moment
We would misplace all sense of time
Then I would gaze into oceanic eyes
Causing ones knees to grow so weak
If only to ensure that she hears
Each and every word that I will speak
Then I will whisper that what I see
Has always been so much more
Than just an ordinary leaf
