Allow Me

By Chungmi Kim

If I must worry about how
I will live in my old age
without wealth
I would be without health now
and how can I live to be
old?
 
If I must worry about how
I will live in my old age
without love
I would be without dreams now
and how can I go on living
another day?
 
Allow me to sit in the sun
and listen to the sky.
I will love you gently.
 
Allow me to stay in my room
and weave my rainbows.
I will love you truly.
 
Like a colt in the meadow
with no boundary
allow me
 
to wander around
 
till I hear the autumn
stealthily
strolling by my door.
 
I will be waiting
to be with you
then.
