Tell me

You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.

George S. Patton

Tell me, how can my favorite cuisine
Bring me bliss after kissing your sweet lips?


Tell me, if I’ll still want to eat my favorite meal
After tasting those succulent lips of yours.

Tell me, if after laughing at your jokes
I will still find other things funny


Or if everything that doesn’t involve you
Will simply bring me doom and gloom.

Tell me, that I’ll still find bird-song pleasing
Even after listening to your mesmerizing voice.


Tell me, that the sunset shall remain resplendent
Even after I’ve gazed into your eyes and set sights upon your bright smile.
