    It matters not
    if you can recite
    the words to my favorite
    song...I am
    content with just
    hearing your voice

    for that is all
    that matters to me

    It matters not
    if you can paint like
    Honeywood, Lawrence, or
    Dali...the pictures
    I see of you when
    I sleep are priceless

    for that is all
    that matters to me

    It matters not
    if your grip is not
    the firmest...just
    hold me

    for that is all
    that matters to me

    It matters not if
    I can not have the
    world...for me that
    would be too much

    all I want is you.

    it had to be said, blak...

    she have to know what matters to you...and that the opinion of the world isn't the concern. as long as you are happy with what she is offering, that's all that matters.

    yes,

    when all is said and done, at the end of the day (and all the other trite expressions set aside)...the only thing that matters is the 'love'.

    Thank you
