A Song to Call my Own


A Song to Call my Own by Maria Fokas

A song to call my own . . .

You asked me why I love you

And a fear of wonder came to mind

If I tell him will he flee?

But then again how can I hide

The most important thing to me?

Is it the way you count my smiles –

Is it the way you hold me when I cry –

Is it how you make me feel alive –

Is it how you promise to protect me –

Is it how you let me be free to breathe –

Maybe the way you call my name –

Or the way you are always near –

Though the oceans keep our love astray –

I love you because  . . .

You make me smile

Because – You listen to my cries

I love you because . . .

You care about how I feel inside

Because –  You  promise me impossible dreams

I love you because . . .

You sing my name in every tune and theme

Because no matter where you are

Whenever I need you  –  you are there

So I tell you, regardless of my universal fear

While hoping you won’t flee –

But if you choose to go because of me

I wish you well in all your journeys

And when you think of me

However far you may dwell

In the silence of the night

Whisper my name . . .

So I know that you are well –
