If I gave you

~ If I gave you my heart on a big silver platter would you sit with me here at the edge of the moon Arranging the stars in a musical pattern singing along as they whistle their tune Then could we climb to the top of the tower counting each step that we touched as we rose Looking out over the valley in slumber trying to guess every dream that they chose Maybe then sail on an ocean of petals riding each wave made of marigold leaves Dropping our anchor just next to the garden tied to a web that an old spider weaves Or we might pick up a brush filled with laughter painting a kite on the chuckling skies Run with the string as a masterpiece follows chasing a tail laced with blue butterflies Kiss in a rainstorm of umbrella whispers splashing in puddles reflecting your smile Wake up the sun as it snoozes till lunchtime rest in the shade holding hands for a while If I gave you my heart on a big silver platter showing you life is a beautiful view Promising all you could ever imagine would you give your heart on a big silver platter… too ~

I love this one. Arranging the stars in a musical pattern and painting a kite on chuckling skies. Artistic and creatively written. Very sweet. I can only hope she would give her heart on a big silver platter too :)
