That Man.

That man, he knows
The rhythm of your soul
And the colour of your lie
And texture of your thoughts
Not because he’s psychic
But because he knows
And because he knows
That man, keep him close.

He, that finds
Inspiration in your smile,
Your words and support;
You should sustain his love.
And if he would
Buy you gifts and
Cherish your dreams
On Valentines day
And everyday’s eve
Telling you he loves you
So you don’t have to guess
That man, buy more hearts
And keep him inside.

And if you find him
He might drive you nuts
But before sun sets,
he’ll screw you back up
He might be crazy
And you might be mad–
But that man,
Even when he’s busy
He’ll make you time;
Not because you deserve it
But because he can
And because you can
Keep him like a promise.
Solemnly . Faithfully.

      1. Hee hee hee… How come I missed this heart and kiss? You have some of the best words. May the heavens hold you close and the sweetness of time kiss you too.

        Let me go and look for my hankie now 🙂
