For You I Would

November 21, 2008
By Marion Silas, Warrenton, VA

I would walk across the country
Just to see your smile,
And I would swim across the ocean
To be near you for a while.
I would fly to the moon and back
If it could bring you bliss,
And I would crawl through a blazing fire
Just to hear that voice I miss.
I would talk for hours on end
If it could get a laugh from you,
And I would jump from the top of a building
If you simply asked me to.
I would fly around the world
If your happiness it would bring,
And I would write you a song
If you wanted me to sing.
Instead I’ll just write you this poem
To show my love for you,
And someday I may show you
I hope you'll feel the way I do.

Your poem was surprisingly decent in comparison to other poems I've been reading on this website...except for the last part

Instead I’ll just write you this poem

To show my love for you,

And someday I may show you

I hope you'll feel the way I do.

sorry but it's a little cheesy and ruins your whole poem

otherwise...decent
