Sometimes, we take for granted the person who is always there beside us. We get so used by their presence that we do not realize that we have been looking at love all along. The moment we realize that we are in love with our best friend, there would be no sparks, just a recognition of the warm feeling melting inside of us, like finally, we have found the home for our heart.
If I should have but just one friend
In all the world for me
A friend who treasures who I am
I should the richer be.
If I should have a thousand friends
Who love me just in name
It’s only you who’s won my heart
Your love is not in vain.
If I should write of times gone by
To change what now could be
I’d write a thousand words for you
To fall in love with me.
In all the world of wondrous prose
Which I can write, and true
These darling words, I treasure them
As secrets just for you.
And if I should have a chance again
An artist I should be
I’d paint the shades of rainbows
The ones I see in thee.
But if I should love you with my words
That I now write for thee
Then I should be the lucky one
Your heart belongs to me.
And if you should cross my mountain
To see a painting fair
There’s a poet with a canvas
And a painting of you there!
