Strawberries

Maybe next time
I won’t forget to open my eyes
when you kiss me.
And maybe next time
I won’t laugh while we’re
making love.

Maybe next time
I’ll be the first to say
“I love you”.
And maybe next time
I’ll think before
I open my mouth.

Maybe next time
I won’t start an argument
for arguing’s sake.
And maybe next time
I won’t hit quite as hard
or even stop and think why I’m hurting you.

Maybe next time
I’ll forget about myself for once
and ask “how’s your day been?”.
And maybe
I’ll remember
If you like
strawberries.

  1. This was such a beautiful poem!!!

    I don’t think I’ve ever opened my eyes when I’ve been kissed.
    maybe I will try that sometime.
    so many nice suggestions came out of reading this.
    I need to try harder to be a “better” me~

Send me love.
