Poetry by Jeff Green


Would you be mine?

If there were stars and summer nights would you be mine,
And whisper dreams and gentle love songs in my ear?
If there were birds still in the trees and lots of wine
Would you be mine?

If there was time enough for love would you be near,
And promise the love I most desire?
If there were thunderstorms above to bring you fear
Would you be near?

If there was passion in my voice would you catch fire
And give me more of you than I had kisses for?
If I took you to the sky would you go higher
Would you catch fire?

Do you know that you’re the girl that I adore?
There has never been a love that’s half as fine.
Do you know you are the one my love is for
And I adore?
