Behind me

She reads words after words,
Her hand idle on my shoulder,
Her heart is beating louder, 
I write words after words.
 
Asking from where they came
with a slightly head nod,
Trying to read the method 
guiding the words as they came. 
 
Who asked to the dandelion:
why or where he will be? 
Shouldn’t be happy to see
and not ask to the dandelion?
 
If I know the correct answer
I will coat with a golden dress,
jewells and fortune to impress
who wanted the correct answer. 
 
And she would stay with me,
either if did or not understand
why I always kiss her hand
while she is writing with me
