Shall I?

IMG_1349

Shall I write for you?
Shall I write for us?
Shall I write about you?
Shall I write about us?
Saying ‘I don’t know where to start’ is an understatement
And I would be lying if I say I haven’t tried,
It never quite matches up
– the end product I envision and what I actually put down
The words just aren’t enough.
“It is bittersweet knowing it isn’t enough to say ‘I love you'”**
Shall I write for you?
Shall I write for us?
Shall I write about you?
Shall I write about us?
Of course! I shall
Of course! I will
Of course! I do
Out of the abundance of my heart; I speak, I write, I do
Albeit seemingly relatively little
But yet I shall;
Proclaim us (and Him) from the tree top
A lover’s delight is that with the power of choice, one is chosen
(continually, because of and in spite of).
—————————————————
As I pondered on whether or not I should post this,
I reminisced on the times I stayed up day dreaming about you and/or us
I remember that one about watching you read this or reading this to you (for the first time)
I hope it still makes you smile. ❤️

    So beautiful! I can’t say enough how you ‘wow’ me every time you write! I really wish I was the ‘her’ in this poem 😀

    Oh Timi, Timi, Timi. Shall I fall for you already? Haha.

    This is brilliantly electrifying! Love, and it’s magical sway. When it’s felt, it’s felt. Nothing can possibly be done about it.

    Welldone! 🙂 ❤

    “A lover’s delight is that with the power of choice, one is chosen”. *in that Blackstreet tone* Slay on, Slay on, Slay ooon! *like Enya* Slay away, Slay away, Slay away!
    I mean, It’s lovely \(^.^)/

    What’s this polldaddy link that shows?

    Don’t know. Just shows up when comments are made. I’m guessing you’re using the app too. Don’t think it shows up when browsing via desktop.

I'm curious, what did you think? Talk to me; leave a comment
