Poetry - Forever You / by Jon Matteson

Forever You

by Jon Matteson

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.
