Say Yes

By: Nupur Kudapkar

to love takes strength 

it takes courage 

to give yourself fully to another person

and trust them not to break you 

to shatter you, out of greed 

so if I ask you to be mine 

would you say yes? 

to walks to the bookshop

and soft kisses on the rooftop

to holding hands at the park 

and bright smiles in the dark 

if you would be so kind as to be mine 

say yes
