What shall I write for you ?

( An interactive poem )

What shall I write for you ?
What would you like to hear ?
Something to bring you near
As if you wrote it too

As if you wrote it yourself
As if you thought it too
As if this is how you
Would speak to a little elf

As if you were enchanted
And once again a child
In woods beauteous and wild
As if all was as you wanted

I would only say the words
Leave you to fill in meanings
Like precious golden gleanings
From harvest fields by birds

( Inspired by Ghalib who wrote :
Dekhna taqreer ki lazzat ke jo usne kaha
Mainey ye jaana ke goya ye bhi mere dil mein hai
Meaning
See the beauty of the discourse : All that he said
It seemed to me as if this ( or he )is in my heart, as well )
