What if?


What if we chased love down forbidden Alleys?
Chased love round parks and jungles
Places were love easily skips away from us
Into cracks, nooks and crannies
Places she loves to play hide and seek with us
What if we chased love till she ran out of breath?
Till her legs could not carry her any longer up
Impossible mountains we dare not climb
Terribly steep cliffs we dare not dive from
Chased her beyond graveyards
And places she decided to haunt
Without giving we notice
What if we chased her?
Until she knew
We and she were meant to be
What if we chased Love Everywhere?
Till she was convinced we were inseparable
Then our hearts and homes would be a place to
House her, wouldn’t that be forever
What if we chased love till?
She gave up her running shoes
And stayed
Right here in our hearts where she belongs
Don’t you just wonder sometimes?
How beautiful a life that would be
The possibilities humongous
Why not take a second with me
Just to ask
What if?
