FC: Ode to Love: A Poetry Anthology By Erin "At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet." -Plato
1: Contents: Company Had I Known What am I supposed to say? Time Judgment Day, Without you Let go Unread Why can't he see? Invocation Name Life Tears My Heart
3: Company I sit here alone with just my memories But somehow, darling, that's enough. The warmth of your sweet embrace The picture of your gentle face Remain, keeping me company Misery loves Company.
5: Had I Known If I had known that you'd be leaving Or that I'd feel this way I'd have held a little tighter And forced you here to stay
7: What am I supposed to say? What am I supposed to say When I know our love has fallen away What am I supposed to say? Can I ask you to stay? What am I supposed to say? Although my heart did stray I still miss you every day
8: I'll love you for forever If you'll be mine for a time.
10: Judgment Day, Without you They can say that I don't dress right. Look right. Act right. I don't meet their unrelenting standards. But no one ever dares say that I don't love right. They'd be wrong. I love so hard it feels like I'm in free fall I love so hard that even when you're just across the room, That's too far. Come back. So we can show these people what love really is. What it was, before.
12: Let go When your day is real tough When it's raining outside When your best's not enough When you're hurting inside Come here to me, Come into my arms I'll hold you tight 'gainst my heart And we won't let go Never let go.
14: Warm Hold me, hug me, keep me warm Amidst this cold winter storm Bind me close and hug me tight Be my fire this snowy night
15: If love is an art Than babe you're quite the painter But lately it seems our colors Are getting fainter and fainter
16: That regretful feeling Of things unsaid... Of books unread
18: Why can't he see? Why can't you see babe, that look in my eye Why can't you see the love behind Every Glance? I'll never know why you can't see, the love shining towards you from me I might become sad, and feel down in the dumps But I know that every relationship has bumps So I pick myself up and look forward to tomorrow No point dwelling on this sorrow Next time I see you I'll just smile extra wide And hope you can tell what I'm feeling inside
21: Invocation If I should die before I wake Bless me lord my soul to take And if by sad misfortune, nay, disaster, my true love shall also fall May you his soul to heaven call Thy doth not know what eyes can't see Thus doth not realize what he means to me
23: Name If I never even knew your name Would love to me still mean the same If I hadn't felt true love's kiss Would it be something I could miss? If I had never seen your face Would everything have fallen into place? I doubt it.
25: Life It isn't about where you're goin' Or even where you've been No life's about just how You get through everything.
27: Tears Tears burning my skin Acidic on my lips Tastes like hate Tastes like sadness No more hate No more sadness Please.
28: My Heart If I give you my heart Will you hold it right to your own And harvest the seeds, our love hath doth sown?
