If I were To Lose



If I were to lose my eyes

And darkness take my light

I’m thankful your beauty lies

Etched upon my night


If I were to lose my ears

Your words kept from me

I’d still your whispers hear

Love spoken so beautifully


If I were to lose my hands

And denied of loving touch

My heart you’d still command

And I’d love you just as much


If I were to lose my tongue

And, ‘I love you’ go unsaid

The breath inside my lungs

Will be yours till I am dead


If I were to lose my lips

Left longing for your kiss

Your taste would still drip

From the candle of your bliss


If I were to lose my nose

No longer able to smell

I’d hold scented memory close

Of this rose that loved me well


If I were to lose my legs

And forced to sit right here

My heart would surely beg

That you would still be near


If I were to lose my heart

I will not shake in tacit fear

For, from the very start

It was yours to have, my dear

    Such a lovely poem. To truly want to give all that we have to those we love is something few can say. Our physical needs can always be modified but emotionally there is no substitution. Beautifully written once again💗
