“Anna is becoming a household name, in poetry circles isn’t she?”
If you love me like I love you
Then you must love me
If you relish me like
Like I do you
Then from you
I must never be lost!
If the fire of your passion burns
A hole through your heart
And chars with every bleeding drop
And if your eyes glaze over with misty haze
As you sweep off into peculiar craze
Then you love me like I do you!
If your soul aches and innards tremble
Because you miss me so
And you hanker to call at every waking chance
Yet dare not smother me;
If you yearn and long for our meeting time
And a glance of heartfelt smile
Or the bubbly sound of my cheery laugh
Then Love, sweet Love,
You love me like I do you.
And if you love me
Like I love you,
If you pleasure-sigh
At our many memories
And care to hold my hand
Then, my friend,
My one beloved
Your life is beauty-full!
