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
