I Would's

I would fall for you
just as leaves fall from trees in autumn
or sunbeam lands on my windows in the morning.
It'll be patient and spontaneous,
it'll be in the proper time.

I would know you
just as my eyes read unfamiliar words in books
and my mouth tastes new dishes in a restaurant.
You would be there,
and I would be here.
Our limbs frozen, stuck in the ground
but our eyes would see beyond
as our hearts find each other.

I would dream of you,
as you would dream of me.
We would both feel that we could be
though we would know we could never be sure
until we choose to try,
and we won't help but choose to.
