If by John Rybicki

If I could tie a river around my love's waist like a ribbon,

Make sails out if her blood and pin down death like a squirming bug.

If I could lift and rock each coffin in my arms it would start with hers.

Everything you ever wanted - Hawk Nelson (With lyrics)

Main Idea

The main idea about this poem is about the love this man has for this girl. And how he would do anything for her. Also would fight death to keep her from leaving him. And puts her before anything else. And how he would do the impossible to make her happy.

Explanation

I choose this poem because the way the man sounded when he was saying that he would do impossible things for the person he loved. And how much of a gentleman he was and would give her the world to this girl in a heart beat. And the pure love he expresses through this poem and how he would fight death just to keep her to himself.

Lyrics

I walk the line

Leave it all behind

I've been waiting forever

Lets go back in time

When I could read your mind

Still I've been waiting


It took the seasons going by

To know its not my fault


I tried to be perfect, tried to be honest

Tried to be everything that you ever wanted

I tried to be stronger, tried to be smarter

Tried to be everything but you


Its been so long

Since you've been home

I used to wait up forever

I used to say a prayer

Wishing you were there

And I'm still waiting


You told me once

You'd show up

But I fell for that

Before I fell to pieces

Then I woke up

To no one,

Just a picture of Jesus

And a house left in pieces



It took the seasons going by

To know its not my fault


I tried to be perfect, tried to be honest

Tried to be everything that you ever wanted

I tried to be stronger, tried to be smarter

Tried to be everything but you


I wanted you

I need you

I want to believe you

I wanted you

I need you

I want to believe you


I tried to be perfect, tried to be honest

tried to be everything but you


I tried to be perfect, tried to be honest

Tried to be everything that you ever wanted

I tried to be stronger, tried to be smarter

Tried to be everything but you

Song connection

The connection the song and the poem have to deal with the type of ways they both are willing to do anything for the one they love.

Poem

Why do gentlemen do what they do to make women happy.

It's to show the, that we all aren't heart barbarians and to show them how respected they are supposed to be.

To show them that this world isn't endangered of men that aren't afraid of showing every girl the same respect they show their mother .

To show the world being a man isn't being able to lift heavy weights, able to fight, or to have the nicest truck.

A real man opens the door for his girl, answer with a yes ma'am, and treat her like a queen.
