If ever there were a grain of sand that fell into the sea,
If ever there were a star above or blossom in a tree,
If ever there were a crimson rose that bloomed in love's full bliss,
I know that ours will ever bloom
and long will be our kiss.
If ever there were a mountaintop that yearned to scrape the sky,
If ever there were a fond embrace or twinkle in your eye,
If ever there were an angel's touch that graced the earth in hue,
If ever there were a truer love,
There is forever you.
I wrote this poem when I was in high school, for my high school girlfriend: Camille Schmierer. I posted this first because it was the one poem I wrote that I always had memorized, and I'm not at my apartment right now to look through my other writings. But hey, I figure... here's a place to start.
