How should you love me? Let me count the ways!

5 Mar

Boy on a Beach by Henry Scott Tuke

If you could just play guitar
as well as you love me
you’d sit and play guitar
’til all the neighbors said to me:
“Your boyfriend can beat that guitar!”
(It’s all you’d ever do.)

If you could only cook as well
as you could play guitar, instead,
If you could play guitar as well
as you love me, you’d buy some sweet fish
and fresh carrot juice and other things
I liked and cook not by instinct
but by what suits my tastes —
that lemon chilled squid, that Mandarin risotto,
that French toast, and you’d put them
all in a box for my lunch ’til everybody said to me:
“Your boyfriend can cook such delights too!”
If you could only cook, instead,
it’s all you’d ever do.

If you could write a poem as well
as you cook, If you could cook
as well as you could play guitar,
If you could play guitar as well
as you love me, your poem would touch
a difficult heart, and make me long
to be a little less difficult.
Such incredibly sweet poems you’d write!
’til all my friends said to me:
“Your boyfriend sure can write such love poems!”
And that’s all you’d ever do.

Then you would forget at which things you suck,
instead, be the best devotee to me 🙂

    bago hairstyle! we will all somehow, find someone who would love us for who we are… the best way to find them, is to not look for them… it’s gonna happen when it’s supposed to happen… just wait for it… 😀

        Dahil ako ay praning.

        Dapat mag-isa lamang ako sa dalampasigan.

        Tanging buhangin at hampas lamang ng alon ang makakagalaw sa akin.

        Ako ba ay ligtas?
