A poem I wrote about my daughter a few years ago. But could also be used to give to a loved one.

What if you were to judge my heart

by these words I write tonight

If this were the final chance I had

because I somehow lost my life

Could I make you understand

all the ways you make me feel

and could just a word or phrase

ever truly prove it's real

If the choice were mine to make

I would have you look into my eyes

so that you could see the truth

and then perhaps you'd realize

That regardless what the future holds

or however painful that might be

A thousand years could not have changed

what you already mean to me.
