If I were to say I love you
 

If I were to say I love you,

Would you think me impulsive or rash?

Would you turn from my gaze,

Walk away in a rage,

Telling friends our first date was our last?

 

If I were to say I love you,

Would you think me too forward, too fast?

Would you think my pace crude,

Ill-conceived, downright rude,

Bid me go and pray never come back?

 

If I were to say I love you,

In my haste would you brand me as mad?

As impatient, imprudent,

Beset with illusion,

A man of no breeding, no class?

 

If I were to say I love you,

Orchestrating an overbold scheme,

I meant no offence,

Touch of heart over head,

Would you forfeit a poor man his dream?
