Searching for you

I dream of you

I have just one photo in my hand

Admiration for you as you stand

I’ve never talked you in front of me

You are perfect as can be

You cannot know me I don’t exist

We have never met, never kissed

You have your life I have mine here

It’s strange what I’m feeling, rather queer

You excite me by warming my blood

My emotions take hold and start to flood

How can you do this when we have never met

An impossible fact that I just cannot get?

You could be here or the other side of the world

Our paths would never cross, your beauty like a pearl

I can always wonder about about what it would seem

The moment we met and I awake from my dream

  1. So relatable. Sure would be a different piece without the “about about” pause; perfectly placed. Thanks for sharing Phil!
