if i compose

if i compose myself into a song,
would you sing me?
would you take me for your lullaby,
and for the song of your joy,
the song of your heart?

if i compose myself into a poem,
would you recite me?
would you make me your ballad
and the ode of your soul,
the epic of your life?

if i compose myself into a tear,
would you shed me?
would you claim me for your sorrows,
and weep me for your grief,
the crystal streaks on your cheek?

if i compose myself into a dream,
would you visit me?
would you value the moon over the sun,
and the pull of sleep over the waking hours,
so that you could be with me?

what then,
if i cannot compose myself?
if all i can be is a man,
and all i could give is my love,
what then?

would you compose me?
