Knock On Wood

Alexandre Landsley

If through space and time

It was known that I was to be yours and you were to be mine

There wouldn’t be a reason for a time machine

Knock on wood, knock on wood

If written in the stars was your name across from mine

I wouldn’t dream of an eraser big enough to make it not so

Knock on wood, knock on wood

If luck had anything to do with us falling in love

I would find myself a rabbit’s foot, a leprechaun’s pot of gold

And hold on to them until the end of times

Knock on wood, knock on wood

If in the desert like Aladdin

I found myself an old lamp and a genie inside

I would wish for you more than one time

Because truthfully, one of you is just not enough

Knock on wood, knock on wood

And if it only took a poem for you to notice this silly old me

Then I would write you a thousand more romantic ones

Just so you would know that you one hell of an inspiration

Knock on wood, knock on wood, knock on wood.

  • Cheeky Missy

    Wow! I LOVE this one! Superb romantic tribute to love and the girl that inspires the speaker's pen. Awesome! Wonderful imagery. La, your various images emphasizing how exceptionally precious she is are too good and sweet. I really like it, to say the least.
