Why You?

Today

I asked myself,

Why you?

 

Is it the curly curls, the beautiful eyes, the smooth throat, the nibbly earlobes…

 

Is it the silky voice, the infectious laughter, the ready with, the inimitable sense of humor…

 

Is it the vulnerability, the innocence, the charm, the evoking of a paternal instinct…

 

Is it the innate goodness, the moral strength, the consideration, the desire to do what is right..

 

And then I thought

Isn’t it enough

That I know

It’s you

 

How many of us –

How many many

Spend lifetimes looking for that elusive

Her and him

And never reach there

Isn’t it enough

That I know

It’s you

So why bother

Why you!

The Sound Of Raindrops On My Roof

Raindrops

The sound of raindrops on my roof reminds me of you

The sound of raindrops on my roof is not like the sound of your voice – clear and sweet

The sound of raindrops on my roof is not like the sound of your fleeting footsteps through the corridor

The sound of raindrops on my roof is not like the sound of your infectious laughter that I’ve grown so used to.

Still

The sound of raindrops on my roof reminds me of you.
