If I offer my hand to you
Will you take hold of it?
Will you intertwine my fingers with yours
And tangle them together, like tendrils of ivy?
Knots never to undone.

If I stand close to you
Will you pull me to your side?
WIll you put your arm around me
And protect me with your quiet oak-like strength?
Shield me from all but you.

If I hold my arms open
Will you take me into yours?
Will you fold me into your embrace
And keep me with you, like a love note in your pocket?
A treasured heart-kept secret.

If I give you the key
Will you unlock my heart?
Will you open the doors and windows
And let your light in, like sunrises in your eyes?
Help me forget the shadows.

If I say "I love you"
Will you reply the same?

Will you welcome me into your heart
And let us live in simple bliss,
Like an eternal summer twilight?
Will you be my whole world
And let our souls be woven together,
Like a beautiful hand-made tapestry?

If you say "I love you"
Will you mean it?
