    Boom…da..da..da..
    Boom…da..da..da..
    Boom…da..da..da..


    Shadows from the ceiling fan Paint a
    kaleidoscope of dreams In my eyes
    open wide to imagine the formation
    of desire resting quietly next to me;

    Boom…da..da..da..

    she…a vision of impossibilities that
    has manifested into a realism so rare
    that I cannot see past the glimmer of
    beauty's rays exuding from her frame;

    Boom…da..da..da..

    she…an unspoken desire enraptured
    by wishful thinking of one whom I
    could walk through life holding hands
    without the discomfort of insecurity;

    Boom…da..da..da..

    she…the silouhette etched on the center
    of my eye that leaves a shadow on every
    candidate that walks only to find that she
    is the only one the to fit perfectly in place;

    Boom…da..da..da..

    me…a gentle giant of sorts, seeking to find
    the peace of true trusting love in the midst
    of carbon copy lies and deceit but I, never
    giving up the journey until the truth appears;

    Boom…da..da..da..

    me…the silence in whispers heard on the
    breeze of conscious thought as she closes
    her eyes to wonder who I may be and if I
    could be all that the others could never know;

    Boom…da..da..da..

    me…a gardener constantly planting seeds of
    love, trust, peace, happiness and compassion
    in the fertile soils of broken vessels watching
    them heal to walk into the arms of another;

    I… Boom…da..da..da..
    just… Boom…da..da..da..
    plant… Boom…da..da..da..
    seed… Boom…da..da..da..

    Boom…da..da..da..
    Boom…da..da..da..
    Boom…da..da..da..
