Tell me

If today I said I love you

Would you believe?

Would you just snob and leave,

Or you’d smile and say ‘me too’?

Tell me

If I proposed to you

Would you let me put a ring

Would you say ‘yes I do’

and allow us start a home?

Tell me

Just tell me

What would your reaction be?

After knowing I have your feelings

And you’re the one I wanna spend my future with.


If today you said you love me

I’d look around and ask if you were talking to me

I’d look at you in a romantic sort of way

And say you are a very sweet person

Of course I’d be a little shaken

With a cold stomach

And a mind wanting so much to believe you

And a soul wanting so much to be attached to yours

But I’d look direct at your rose stained eyes

And say that I love you too

Coz those are the words that matter

Words enough to create a love letter that when read, would create an eruption inside my heart

And a collapse of the pillars that make me.

If you’d propose to me today

My earth would be stilled a little

My brain would stop a moment

As I listen to the sensual rapture of butterflies in my stomach

I’d take a little steps back

And come back again running and hug you

As I let the universe know that I love you too

I’ll promise not to hurt you and your feelings

And with every new sunrise

I’d kiss a nerve of your body

And leave love notes on flesh.
