Someone Like You (a waltz)

The morning in mourning

did cry in despair

since someone like you

out of dreams couldn’t fare

for

someone like you was all that I need,

I lied to myself but tried to believe . . .

The day broke, no fanfare,

but bright shone the sun

on you and your smile

for the music begun

for

someone like you was all that I need,

but my heart and my mind were not agreed . . .

In words that were spoken

it all became clear

that someone like you

was a thought that I feared

for

someone like you–it simply won’t do

the place in my heart was empty but knew . . .

Those words were revealing

and it wouldn’t seem

appropriate to

walk away from a dream

for

someone like you would never make do

for someone like me who loves only you.

    1. That’s extremely kind of you! πŸ™‚

      I toyed with some drafts for self-publishing but haven’t released anything. My work isn’t quite polished enough for publication.
