Forever & Always

If we were children

I would make you a Valentine

Uneven red paper heart

With a tiny hand print

A little poem scrawled on the front


If we were old and dying

I would lie down next to you

And wrap my arms around your shoulders

Close my timeworn eyes

And die happily that way


If we were prince and princess

I would beg my father

To allow you to court me

And we would set off

Through the gardens of the palace


If we were in a fairytale

I would throw a ball

Only you would be invited

And we would dance and dance

As our wings lifted us higher


If we were us

I would make you a Valentine

I would wrap my arms around you

We would dance forever and ever

And I would love you always
