If You Love A Girl


If you love a girl
You are to set her free
Not matter how much it hurts
Not matter how hard you want to hold on
Good things cannot be forced
Good things cannot be planned
Despite how right it may feel
Despite what a perfect fit she is
And if you truly love her
And you truly want her to be happy
You are to let go of her
And set her free into the wild

If you love a girl
You are to fight for her
No matter how hard it is
No matter how slim your chances could be
Good things are worth fighting for
Good things are worth saving
Despite the countless times you fail
Despite things not looking so pretty
And if you truly love her
And you truly want to be together
You are to show her how important she is to you
And fight for her and you both

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
