words in ink

I want to write words in ink the colour of your eyes
I want to compose music to the rhythm of your heart
I want to create a work of art as beautiful as your smile
And I want always to go back to the start

I want to write words in ink the colour of your eyes
That see the world in your sweet forgiving way
That look at me with that gentle affectionate glow
And shine more brightly at the daft rhymes I say

I want to compose music to the rhythm of your heart
The heart that beats with a passion so pure
I want to add lyrics to sing to you in your dreams
To produce a lullaby that only my love can cure

I want to create a work of art as beautiful as your smile
That gloriously brightens each day of my life
A picture of magic of innocence of joy
That tells the world we are truly alive

And I want always to go back to the start
To the moment when my heart first tripped over you
I want to relive every second of every moment of time
So that I can spend forever with you

I want to write words in ink the colour of your eyes
I want to compose music to the rhythm of your heart
I want to create a great work of art as beautiful as your smile
And I want always to go back to the start

  1. Very nice and wonderful poem. Sounds like the ones I write or, at least, try to write.
