I'm Asking You

These days won’t be gone forever
We have so many more to come
The romance will be the same
We will live what we’ve become

I kiss you like it’s the last time
Or the first time after we met
Or after long you were gone
I can’t let your closed eyes rest

I know I’m lucky, it’s true
After all these years
What do you see in me?
Do you know me yet,
I can’t say I know myself
That’s why I’m asking you

I wanted to give back all your desires
A flower for each moment I remember
The garden, a forest covered blanket
My roots piercing your heart forever

I know I’m lucky, it’s true
After all these years
What do you see in me?
Do you know me yet,
I can’t say I know myself
That’s why I’m asking you

Romance is in the air Mark. It is the essence of life itself and should stay all through one's lifetime.

Me too... I'm 61 but it's never too late Dr. Mehmood... thank you for reading my poems.
