    eve :

    Howard, why didn't you talk to me

    all you had to do was walk to me

    i would've gladly said hello

    howard :

    i was trying

    i was trying ...

    all the while, while i was crying

    to get you sighing

    but my cello

    couldn't play the tunes

    to get you replying those afternoons

    i admit i was denying he eclipsed your moon

    to sit with you

    i was sighing in wait for our cartoon

    the Dagwood in me

    thought it couldn't be too soon to crowne you my Blondie

    but now i'm marooned without you

    and i doubt you'd understand

    but i really did try out for your band

    to cry out "i love you" and at least hold your hand

    as a friend

    did we have to end?

    eve :

    well, that depends

    didn't you want my platoon at your command

    when i told you my balloons weren't ready to land

    and when they did your sand dunes weren't ready to withstand

    my "blue" feelings

    howard :

    and i'm still reeling

    how could all the delight from the anticipation of me standing under your ceiling result in me stealing

    your smile?

    [eve shrugs]

    i'd do anything to replace it

    even travel the 186 million miles it takes to face it

    eve :

    face what howard?

    howard :

    are you ready to embrace it?

    eve :

    embrace what????!!!!!!!!

    smoochhhhhh ...........!!!!!!

    oh ....... howard ............



    love,

    eve & howard

    A kiss can say things that words can't. So endearing, Howard.
