Can I Be

Can I be
your eternal
love, and be
the one who’s
there

To hold
you tightly
in my arms,
the one who’ll
always care

Can I be
the one
to whisper
sweet things
in your ear

Things so
sweet and
passionate,
romantically
sincere

And let
me be your
teddy bear just
squeeze me
close to you

And all
those dark
and lonely nights
you’ll easily get
through

Or let
me be your
very heart and
all your pain
I’ll shove

I’ll keep
the pain away
while being,
the holder of 
your love

Can I be
your shooting
star, just make
a wish on 
me

Your every
wish I’ll grant
to you, and all 
that your eyes 
see

Can I be
your morning
dew that wakes 
you from your 
sleep

With a
heavenly smell
that’s so divine
and a taste that’s
ever sweet

Or can
I be your
sunny days
that fills your
life with light

Or your
evening moon
that’ll set the
mood for a romantic
moonlit night

Please let
me be your
rainbow long,
colors of every
kind

And at
the end of
my rainbow, 
my love is what
you’ll find

Can I be
your seasons 
four that come 
throughout
the year

Like Winter,
Spring, Summer
and Fall my
love is always 
here

And can
I be your
paradise, your
special heavenly
place

A place
where you
would stay
forever and I’d
ever see your face

Or can
I be your
sweetest dream
a dream that’ll
make you smile

A dream
that’d make
you want to
sleep and dream
for quite a while

Or let
me be your
happiness which
I want you to
have

And if
you stay with
me my love
you’re on the
perfect path

Please let
me be your
simple laugh
your freshly fallen
snow

I want to
be your favorite
color, your
favorite star that
glows

I want to
be your every
breath, that
warm place in
your heart

I want to
be locked on
to you and
never break
apart

Dear let
me be your
happy times
I’ll fight with all
the sad

We’ll laugh
our way through
all the good, I’ll
hold you through
the bad

And let
me be your
deepest want,
the one thing
you desire

The thing
that causes
your soul to sing
and lights your
heart on fire

Please let
me be your
happy song,
your warm and
gentle breeze

The song
would soothe
your heart, while wind,
blew throughout
the trees

Or can
I be your
evening dusk
to you is how
it’s drawn

Your beauty
goes deep into
the night and
out it comes as
dawn

Can I be
your eternal
love and be
the one who’s
there

To hold
you tightly
in my arms
the one who’ll
always care

I want
to be your
everything for
that you are to
me

Your only
one, your
only love, my
darling can I
be

Written in Germany  -Circa 1998

    Small 4 lines in stanzas, but charmingly flows as a narrow stream to the end, well written

    I went deep into my "poetic playbook" for this oldie. It's juvenile and simple, but I always liked it! Thanks Rick, appreciate it! MC
