    For those in love or ever been in love...

    Perhaps is a word that’s so uncertain, meaning neither yes nor no
    Maybe things will work out fine but not necessarily so;
    Perhaps, so indecisive; possible, but not probable too
    Things seeming so simply false could easily be true;
    Perhaps if I’d spoken sooner, if I’d let my true feelings show
    You would’ve opened up to me but then we’ll never know;
    Perhaps if I were in your shoes, or you could fit into mine
    The feelings we didn’t allow to surface would be easier to define;

    Perhaps if we were different, our principles easier to bend,
    We’d not have denied the obvious, calling it simply ‘friend’;
    Perhaps in a different time of place, though people seldom change
    This choice of ours to share a love, would not need to be ‘arranged’;
    Perhaps if other people, could for once their own business mind
    Life would prove more peaceful living, and for us things would be fine;
    Perhaps we’ll share some smiles and laughs, maybe some tears we’ll cry
    But just how wrong can we go, when it’s just you and I?

    Perhaps when we discovered this love so warm and rare
    We should’ve allowed ourselves to run, not creep with tactless care;
    Sometimes we just resign ourselves, to whatever we’re into
    Not acknowledging that beneath the smile lies a heart that’s blue;
    Perhaps if the feelings of our heart and mind were more projected
    There would be no need for any love to be neglected;
    Perhaps when you as often refer to what ‘daddy’ said to do
    You’re overlooking the possibility, that this love could be true;

    Perhaps I did move to slow or I could’ve moved too fast
    There’s nothing that can be positively done, to make anything last;
    Perhaps today is merely a dream, it’s so good it’s got to be real
    Should we rob ourselves of this happiness, or these moments steal?
    Whenever I’m wrapped in your arms, I’m overwhelmed with you slightest touch
    You have the knack to unleash in me great passion I’d buried too much;
    You do so much for my spirit, lifting me to heights unknown
    The pleasures I experience are possible, because of what you’ve shown;

    So perhaps we could be considered lucky, for we’ve stumbled onto something nice
    Thoroughly enjoying each other without paying too severe a price;
    We’re grown mature adult-like people, or so others would say,
    But, we can’t afford to let maturity stand in our way;
    No, we are pursuing what love we feel
    Hoping ultimately to find it is real
    Then, perhaps in love we’ll decide to stay…

    such truth. love the flow - reminds me of me and my husband. From two different sides of the track but somehow we make it work every day. It's work, but not hard work, and that's love.

    perhaps...

    if we didn't guess...second guess...rethink...all the possibilities that make up the day, life would be as it was meant to be: HAPPY.

    masterly scribed, poet.

    THANKS for flowing.

    to all...

    perhaps if we could see life as it really is and
    perhaps if we walked the path created for us
    then perhaps...life today could be easy to enjoy

    thank you all for the read and your wisdom...

    I will sit patiently by your fountain
