If Ever You

by Ehsan Sehgal

If ever you are sad
Even in your smile
I become
Your joy and pleasure
If ever you don't talk
To me
I observe my attitude
To correct and change
For the reasons
The concerns
The worries
Of your silence
If ever you are angry
I feel
The affection, devotion
And the sea of love
Into your anger
I hold you
In my arms
To assure
My love
To endorse
My compassion
My feeling
With the touch of
Your sweet, soft lips
I say
You are the real one
Who is my life
Soul and love-mate.
