~ If I Could Give You Spring ~
If I could, I would pass to
you, the early flush of spring,
To bless your spirit with
an everlasting gift
for you to
brush against your cheek.
If I could, I would pass on
a sunset's glow
to touch your hand
with all the warmth that it imparts,
The dew of morning
to please the soul of you.
If I could, I would pass into
your heart, the gift of unending love
to keep for all you've done,
The colors of the rainbow
with the carousel of fun.
If I could, I would, pass your way
all about you,
God's joy and peaceful delight
to fill you every day
with the love of everlasting friendship
just as you would like.
Soft whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems © March 2009
I am your friend and my love for you goes deep.
There is nothing I can give you,
but there is much, very much, that,
while I cannot give it, you can take.
-- from a letter written by Fra Giovanni, 1513
