If I gave you this flower
Would you let me hold your hand?
If I whispered something
In your ear
Could we play “toesies” in the sand?

If I told you that I love you
Would you stand there speechless?
Or would you blush in answer?
If I said
You taste like peaches?

Would you wink when I am sad
If I caught the stars for you?
If I gave you all my heart
Would you accept it?
Kiss it?
And would you make it new?

Would you smile and wrinkle your nose
If I tried to sing?
Would you cry while I sang your sonnet?
And put your finger in this ring?

If I held you in my arms
And said that
My love cannot sever
Would you say “Yes” and kiss my smile
And promise me forever?

When forever has come and gone
And we’re a beauty and wrinkled old man
If I whispered and brought you flowers
Would you?
Still will you my darling, let me hold your hand?

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

Cute. Very cute. The only part i'm not really getting is the "you taste like peaches" part. i don't feel like you finish the thought. Maybe you shouldn't have a question mark after "Or would you blush in answer" I think that would work. Overall, very good! :)

Love love love the ending! This is a really sweet poem :) and I love when you say "Would you say "Yes" and kiss my smile" I thought it was really unique and never really heard anything quite like that. Great job. :)

The only thing holding us back in life is our desire to stay where we are and not venture further.

Whoa. I really like this! I think the only thing that could be done to improve it is if you changed "My love cannot sever" to "My love cannot be severed." This is a really great piece! :)
