What Would You Say


What would you say if you knew that I loved you
Would you invite me always to walk by your side
Or…
Would my loyalty overwhelm you
Would you abruptly brush me aside

What would you say if you were my refuge
With gentle strength would you hold me near
Or…
Would my need seem so weighty
That you’d take flight in fear

What would you say knowing you were my star
Would your reflection serve as my guide
Or…
Would you desert me in darkness
With arrogance in your stride

What would you say if my heart was yours
Would we join hands in a union of souls
Or…
Would you refuse to walk holding hands
painting my heart the color of coal

What would you say to my burning hunger
Would you own me in the blazing fire
Or…
Would you run from the flame
Leaving me to freeze my desire

Give thought to these questions I pose
Will you accept the love I offer today
Or…
Will I always be wondering
Just what you would say

    Three years on and I rediscovered this pearl.

    I will take you in my arms, look deep into your eyes, see the love in your heart and reflect it…

    Keep on PAinting

  2. Questions to test the true fibre of a man.

    I want to answer from the following quote from The Dance of Oriah Mountain Dreamer:

    ‘I have sent you my invitation, the note inscribed on the palm of my hand by the fire of living. Don’t jump up and shout: “Yes, this is what I want! Let’s do this!” Just stand up quietly and dance with me.’
