    I could be your friend
    If you wanted me to
    And love you
    On the dark side
    Of the moon

    While you
    Serenade her
    Under the rays of sun
    You could be
    Two
    Together
    And I would be
    One

    I could be your desert
    If you wanted me to
    And sacrifice my thirst
    To the unending drought

    While you
    Swim deep into
    Her Oasis
    I would stand
    Without cloud

    Alone

    On this deserted island
    I would build a new home
    While your two bodies
    Of water
    Taunted my sandy shores

    I could be your maple tree
    If you wanted me to
    With leaves changing colors
    To suit your Seasons

    While you rooted yourself
    In her rich soils
    I would still know

    That my roots
    Are firmly planted too

    With or without you
    I could continue to grow

    And

    I would let you go....

    If you wanted me to


    *for a very special friend*

    "if loving you is wrong, i don't wanna be right
    if being right means being without you...i'd rather live a long, dull life..."

    or, something to that effect.

    i want moonrays to caress your body
    when you lay on the beach at night
    gazing at the beautiful ocean
    reflecting the moon and star lights

    i want gentle breezes to tickle your locks
    as you pause a moment to think of me
    i want the sand to caress your toes
    to soothe your soul...as you long for me

    what i want for you is for your laugh to ring true
    not hollow or sad...when the booming comes through

    i want your eyes to light up in the morning sunshine
    when i whisper your name...i want you to know that you're mine

    i want your body to quiver at the thought of my touch
    not agonizing from afar...coz i was feeling another's touch

    i want your face to light up...when you lay eyes on me
    i want to always have you near...so you know where your heart should be

    i want to gaze upon this portrait...GOD has painted just for me
    when i look into your eyes...all that's love, i want to see

    that's what i want FOR YOU.

    HURRY Home.:)
