what has happened?

i am so glad
to be wrong
about being away
for as long
as last year.
pleasantly surprised!

i actually
have a melody
for this…
now
please don’t
take it seriously
there’s some
artistic license
exercised here…

Tell me it’s love
When we walk
Down the street
And you stop
To kiss my cheek
Tell me it’s love
When you hold
My hand
And lead me to
Your
Private, promised land

‘Cause nobody
Knows what it is
Nobody knows at all
But I believe
If we take
More than we give
That’s not love
No, not at all

Tell me it’s love
When in the
Middle of the night
I want to hold you
Oh so tight
Tell me it’s love
When you whisper
In my ear
You want me so near
To you…

‘Cause nobody
Knows what it is
Nobody knows at all
But I believe
If we take
More than we give
That’s not love
No, not at all

Tell me it’s love
That makes you
Think of me
Daily
Tell me it’s love
That brings you
Here
As close as you dare
To be near me…

‘Cause nobody
Knows what it is
Nobody knows at all
But I believe
If we take
More than we give
That’s not love
No, not at all

Oh, wouldn’t you tell me
Tell me…
As many times
As I’ve told you
What is this love?

What does it say
About me
I wonder
When, of all the stuff
I’ve written,
This one I can completely
Recite
From memory
(I remember fragments
Of others):

On a cold, dreary
Sunday morning
I wake up to
Your warm hand
On my left
Stubbled cheek
And after blinking
At the radiance
Of your beauty
And comprehending
That you were there
With so much warmth
In your eyes
I hold your hand
And kiss
Your fingers
Which makes you
Smile and move
Closer
To embrace me.
We spend the next
What seems like hours
Talking, laughing
Reminiscing
About this, that
And last night.
And in time
The heat from
Our bodies
Forces us
To kick off
The covers
And make love.
As I imagine
Two can do
If together
Without the sun
On a cold, dreary
Sunday morning.

btw, did one ever
investigate
that Naipaul book
i’d mentioned?

2 = yes?
