I can't help but love you

I can't help but love you
When the sun is in the sky,
And all the birds are flying,
While the clouds are rolling by;
I can't help but love you,
With the lark's song on the breeze-
And the mockingbird, a tease-
Who could help, but love you?

I can't help but love you
Though you're distant as the moon,
Mostly far as western China,
And the sun up, at high noon;
I can't help but love you,
An eclipse lives in my heart-
Because we're far apart-
Who could help, but love you?

I can't help but love you
When the moon circles the earth,
And the sun craves all the planets,
And the day is giving birth;
I can't help but love you-
Even blood inside my veins
Holds a little bit of flames;
Who could help, but love you?

I Don't Like Long Poems

You see, I don't like long poems
My attention span is not so long,
And the birds are busy through the window;
I'm so afraid I'll miss their song.

Birds don't last long, in this world,
As my mind grows shorter than a fuse,
Lit at the business end of a stick
Of dynamite, and that's no ruse.

You see, I don't like long poems;
For I'm growing older by the clock
And I've things to say to this old world,
And tombstones aren't well known to talk.

I've things to say, and people's eyes
Are wandering, while I have my say;
Seems I talk faster all the time,
Before the light runs out of day.

You see, I don't like long poems;
My shadow's shorter every year
I don't have endless hours to read-
There's words I'd really rather hear.

If I Were a Moon

If I were a moon, I'd chase your sun,
Or if a butterfly, you'd be the one
Flower, that I could not resist;
Or if a valley, your green I would kiss,
And if a cloud, when the day is done,
The spark of lightning, the storm's begun.

If you were death, I'd be the tomb,
If you were birth, I'd be the womb,
And if you were higher to reach than the sky,
I'd hitchhike the meteors, whistling by-
For love is the field that holds the whole world,
As patiently, patiently time is unfurled.

Miranda Warning

You have the right not to look into Miranda's eyes.
Anytime you do look into Miranda's eyes,
Anything you see there can and will cause you to fall in love with Miranda.
You have the right to counsel on how to write a proper love letter to Miranda.
If you have no pencil and paper, they will be provided for you.
Do you understand this, as it has been explained to you?
