If You Were An Open Book

Posted on: 31 October 2006

If you were an open book
Your heart and soul I’d see
I would recognize with one look
Your thoughts and all your needs
And with every page I turn
And with every word I read
I would feel the way you feel
Your love, your hopes, your dreams
And I would dip into your book
To learn and to explore
To appreciate the man you are
To understand you more


You are not an open book
And your prose is closed to me
This is no true love story
For you will always be
Inscrutable, unreadable
An eternal mystery

Very moving Ann. That is the wish and hope for many of us that we can be with someone and share. Truly share.

mmmm… that would be nice wouldn’t it …

Wow, Ann… That was beautiful and so very poignant.

I agree with Brian – we all wish we could share like that with someone…

Hi Ann

People always say it all before I get here!

Beautifully written Ann … sometimes it is the mystery that keeps one going not knowing. I feel.
Thank you for sharing. :o)
