The Poem in Your Heart

Written by: Skeelo Khumalo

I wish to be the sunshine that brightens your day; 
I wish to be the moonlight in your sweet dreams; 
I wish to be joy and keep you away from frowns; 
I wish to be the smile that saves your beauty. 

I wish to be the fulfillment to lift you up to destiny; 
I wish to be your goals so you can achieve all; 
I wish to be your mind so you can think no problems; 
I wish to be your world and let you own me. 

I wish to be your blood that strengthens your muscles; 
I wish to be the beacon that safeguards your way; 
I wish to be the heartbeat that keeps you alive; 
I wish to be the nourishment you need to survive. 

I wish to be the voice that talks on your behalf; 
I wish to be your arms to hand everything you need; 
I wish to be your hero to protect you day and night; 
I wish to be your dreams come true. 

I wish to be the tissue that dries your tears; 
I wish to be the lips that caress your skin; 
I wish to be the veins singing in streams on your body; 
I wish to be the wonder that shines within. 

I wish to be the pillow that cushions your head; 
I wish to be the mattress that softens your bed; 
I wish to be the touch that strokes your desire; 
I wish to be the flame that ignites your fire. 

I wish to be the passion that melts you dear; 
I wish to be the loyalty that sets you apart. 
I wish to be darling and keep you happier forever; 
I wish to be the love that will always remain. 

I wish to be the treasure that makes you fly; 
I wish to be everything you need, want and desire; 
I wish to be the portion that makes you whole; 
I wish to be the poem in your heart.
