Photographers, artists, poets: show us ORDERLY.
Anyone can tell a story, but not everyone can tell it like I do
Best to start now and begin the tale of how I came to be with you
Can it be possible that two people so unlike each other can sit still for even an hour?
Dare say even a minute or two, without the barest hint of a glower?
Elephant in the room, they say, that’s the thing we have between us two
Far leaning much to the right, and the other to the left, what’s left for us to do?
Go on and keep on going, that’s the answer to everything that comes along the path
Having each other, no matter our differences, we’re just two souls fitting into the math
In which one plus one is simply two, there’s really nothing to it
Just go with the flow, my love, let’s simply grin devilishly and bear it
Kisses in the moonlight, starlight and even in the daylight
Love knows no time nor space, really, we’re simply two romantics looking to the light
Merely because we know that as they say, love truly conquers all
Never a doubt between us, that’s the first and last thought we had before the fall
Only when eyes shut in the night of our lives do we then say good night
Pair our dreams with dreamless sleep till we awake ready for the fight
Quick to rise and quicker still to rush into this fray called reality
Running together, hands held tight, we see nothing but you and me
So this here is the tale that has no beginning and no end
This is the story of you and me, to one another a lover and a friend
Understand, if you’re still with me, that the tale I tell is pretty universal
Vast and widely used, the tale of love to life in general is something so integral
Were life ever so bland that should you feel there is nothing in it for you
Xerxes the Great never understood it when faced with Leonidas’ courage true
You may not find our tale so coherent, because it really doesn’t make any sense
Zany, I know, but if you’ve read this far down, I hope you forgive me this offense.
