I Could

I Could.
I could love you.
With all my heart.
And my entire mind.
I could promise you that.
But I can’t.
Not yet.
I have to follow the wind.
And move away from you.
But I’ll leave behind a trail.
A trail to you.
I wish I had a Gretel.
To help me find my way home.
Home is where your heart is.
And where mine belongs.
I could trust you.
With all my secrets.
And my entire soul.
I could promise you that.
But I can’t.
Not yet.
I have to follow the rain.
And wash away my past.
But I’ll leave you an umbrella.
So you will stay dry.
And be my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
I could follow you.
With my two legs.
And my entire body.
I could promise you that.
But I can’t.
Not yet.
I have to follow my dreams.
And make them come true.
But I’ll leave you a dream catcher.
So you can catch my dreams.
Once they become real.
And rejoice with me so I’m not alone.
I could fight for you.
With my two hands.
And my entire strength.
I could promise you that.
But I can’t.
Not yet.
I have to follow my passion.
But I’ll leave you an empty notebook.
So I can fill the pages once I return.
And create a new chapter with you.
I could love you.
I could trust you.
I could follow you.
I could fight for you.
I really could.
But I have to follow a life for me.
So I can return ready to follow a life for you
