I Wrote This Song for You
I wrote this for song you.
I hope you didn’t have me confused
with someone who throws moments like this away.
While I have your attention,
there’s oh-so-much I’d like to say.
What if I told you that when you smile,
I feel compelled to do the same?
Or, what if I told you, that when it snows I’m happy
because I’ve seen your face glow while the white-crystals fall
softly above you on the trees.
I don’t normally like the snow, but these days
you have me swearing that I do.
What if I told you that your almond eyes
have my heart jumping every time
they catch mine?
That your voice grooves
through my ears
like a snake charmer’s song.
Or, that your touch on my arm
turns the air electric.
What if I told you I love
the way clouds of smoke move
cursive from your lips?
Smooth as the rhythm of your hips
dancing in the moonlight.
What if I told you that I’m feeling
especially honest tonight?
