Be my smile

© Written by Tarang Sinha




I want to decorate you
On my lips
Spreading mirth everywhere…

Be my smile.


I want to keep you
In my eyes
Weaving the blissful future…

Be my dreams.


I want to think of you
Always
Forgetting every pain of life

Be my thoughts.


I want to be with you
Till my last breath
Shrugging the meaning of loneliness…

Be my shadow.


I want to hide you
In my heart forever
Keeping my happiness alive

Be my love.

  6. This kind of repetition really fits the flow of love for me, and you catch it well in your poem, the cascading wanting - sweet.

  16. This was absolutely, wonderfully romantic. These are words that a woman would love to hear and would make her feel loved and cherished. Very well written! Be blessed.
