About the Poem

I was writing that poem some night. It is the first in English because my native language is German. Anyway, I was thinking about one girl who let me wait weeks before she made the final decision to stay with me or with her previous boyfriend. She told me all along that she'd been wanting to be with me. So, I was writing that poem about the things I would be and do if she would say "Yes".

Finally, after 2 months of waiting, she decided to stay with him.

Yes

If you say yes I'll be your dream
If you say yes I'll be you shining sun
If you say yes I'll be your oxygen
If you say yes I'll be the one who makes you happy
If you say yes I'll be the one who protects you
If you say yes I'll be your star in the night
If you say yes I'll be the light in the darkness of the night
If you say yes I'll be the one who guides you home
If you say yes I'll be your happiness in times of sadness
If you say yes I'll stop the rain from falling down
If you say yes I'll be everything you need
If you say yes I'll be everything you want
If you say yes I'll be your lover
If you say yes I'll be your boyfriend

If you say no I'll be the best friend you'll ever find.
