I Would Give All I Have

I would give all I have to have you with me,
to see tomorrow with you,
to touch and hold the one thing dear to me,
I would climb the highest mountains,
I could swim the widest oceans,
close my eyes and be blinded by your love,
trusting in you to lead my way,
I would give all I had for you,
to love you and be loved in return,
to adore, you and be adored in return,
I would give my all to be with you,
to make the memories of yesterday forever,
to see me and you in the future.
Come whatever,
I would give all I have for you,
lay down my life for you,
to sacrifice my soul for your pardon,
I would give all I have for you,
be it to travel to the ends of the earth,
to catch the falling stars out of the skies above,
I would give all,
to hear you say the words I so needed to hear,
the words that would heal my broken heart,
the words that mean all the world to me,
to hear you say "I love you,"
and look into your eyes knowing you meant it,
for I would give all I have in life for you,
for you gave me all I have in life,
and now without you, I have nothing.

I was inspired to write this when I lost the girl of my dreams, and the girl who stole my heart, to someone else.

this poem is extraordinarily touching.

i'm sorry that you had to be this sad, ever. if you're capable of this kind of feeling, and this girl walked away from you...it doesn't make sense.

this was really great.
