“Be My Penguin,” An Original Poem

“Sitting on top of glaciers/We would watch the dawn/and sing each other love songs/All day and night long”

Somewhere in polar regions

Far far far away

Penguins dance around 

On the ice all day

Hugging all year round

They sing each other songs

They talk about their love

And that their love is strong

 

If we were also penguins,

We would slide in snow

We would dance around

We would snowballs throw

Sitting on top of glaciers 

We would watch the dawn

And sing each other love songs

All day and night long

 

But you don’t even know me

You don’t understand

And even when you see me

You think I’m just your friend

But I just want to stop you

Tell you “you’re the best”

Ask you to be my penguin 

And bring you to my chest

 

If we were also penguins,

It would not be so hard

I would just entertain you

And bring you close to heart

We would just dance together

Watch stars while eating fish

And I would say “I love you”

Translated to penguin-ish

 

If we were also penguins,

We would slide in snow

We would dance around

We would snowballs throw

Sitting on top of glaciers 

We would watch the dawn

And sing each other love songs

All day and night long
