If I could see how happy you were, all the time,
I'd give you a soft touch at 99
A hug from 98 to 95
a kiss with every percentile because it's worthwhile
to keep you at 100 percent and any time
spent on your smile is more valuable than diamonds.
Your smile, that divulges dissent and desire,
with eyes that dance with daring fire,
All the feelings fueled by yearning and ire
Felt so openly that I need not open up chambers and ventricles
To understand what's beating beneath the surface.
I would embrace you at 79,
Write you love letters at 68 and bring you all the stars in the night sky at 56.
I'd wrap you tightly in my arms from 40 to 55
even if recharging your happiness took all night.
I would buy you the world at 30 and
burn it down for you at 20
19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11
10 fingers to paint my love on your skin
9876 through thick and thin
54321 no zero because this will never end
I would give all of myself to bring you to 100 again.
