What I Would Do

By Damien Knight

If I could buy you roses they would be upon your door
If I could get you chocolates I would get them by the scores
If I could write a love song I would sing it aloud
If I could declare my love to you I would shout above the crowds

If I knew how to write a sonnet every line is yours
If I knew how to sing I would sing of you on every shore
If I knew what ring you wanted I would place it on your hand
If I knew how to kneel before you I could be your man

I could not buy you those roses or a ring
No sweet love songs or sonnets could I sing
Still with this I declare my love so true
For this man there is only one woman and that is you
