You are not all I want



I wish to feel the morning breeze

and taste the morning dew

I wish to smell the lilies
and watch the sunset hue

I want to tread on unknown lands
and form friendships all along
To wake up on a boat
To be the subject of a song

To see the lights of a far off village
that glisten on an evening still
to pour my love in the glass of the universe
until it fills and spills

I wouldn't say you're all I want
for that would be untrue
I am just a gypsy, and life my dance
that I want to share with you

Beautiful! A love poem that's about the love for life. The last two lines are particularly inspiring!
