YOU.... IN THE REAL WORLD
You made an impression...
not with a hammer, but a smile
a genuine, 100% happy kind of look
The kind I strangely want to inspire
You keep your distance, yet.... can I tell?
If you are just being kind.... or maybe
I might be so lucky to attract a young lady
so vibrant, and full of compassion, that....
You make me want to know more....
like, how could I add to what appears in my eyes
is a life that needs nothing at all
You're spirit is free, your soul seems complete
You may not have a place for my heart'
I most definitely want to find out
For better or worse, maybe the truth will hurt
but knowing just might make the dream real
You say, “What dream?”.... disbelieving
the things I have said in the past
“YOU” started off each paragraph here
like the YOU that starts off each day
The YOU in my mind smiles back at me
each morning is the YOU I hope you might be
Happier, still, because I bring along bliss
the kind imagined so often.... so clear
There's nothing like a partner, a lover
a friend that is a help when you hurt
that shares in elations and celebrations
that life naturally seems to bring your way
It's quite obvious.... the signs are there
to everyone that sees us out and about
We found the match to our euphoric lives
The key ingredient, to bring sunshine every day
A partner that loves and supports
not only the you of today, but the you of tomorrow
and more... the YOU you WANT to be
The one you strive to be.... and WILL be
So.... how can I get you to open the door
for this stranger that just came along?
This man, so open.... to all that you are
