    We live

    day after day

    constantly faced with mistakes from yesterday

    "why is that?" you say

    as we walk life's lonely {roads}
    the echo of our steps
    resounding {loud...as we stroll}
    the back roads and alley ways
    through many days
    of malcontent
    our happiness spent
    misused and abused
    so we stroll
    alone
    not wanting to be used

    we sleep…to a gentle snore
    dreaming of tomorrows
    and wanting so much more
    of the happiness we see
    in the faces of others
    to laugh
    to dance
    maybe even a lover
    not just in our dreams
    but reality, too
    let me open my eyes
    and feel the warmth of you

    we wake
    to a sunshiny day
    and reflect on mistakes
    we made yesterday
    when our head was in turmoil
    ...our heart, a wreck
    and, life, for us
    wasn't happy,
    i suspect
    WHEN
    clouds consumed my baby blue sky
    and turrets of raindrops filled my day
    deep, roaring thunder rolled down my hill
    and dared mighty sun to get in its way
    there are confusing times
    when i don't know what to do
    still, i continue moving forward
    first, one step...then two
    all in my quest
    to find and get with you

    then

    there are sometimes
    when sunshine fills my days
    and all the things i feel inside
    comes out in loving ways
    “i love you” being one
    “hey, beautiful” being two
    “you are the sunshine in my life”
    “please, share my future” to name a few

    i've seen the joy within your life
    i'd like to share my day with you
    to hold your hand
    to be your friend
    to laugh
    and play
    and make love with you

    this, I would do.
