You’re a good guy, I want to spend,
My days smiling at time you lend,
From a busy schedule, life before —
I entered your picture, adore —
The way you spend time taking Grandma for groceries,
How you talk to her, bored but, showing pleasantries.
You make me believe beyond my doubt,
That there are good men on love’s route.
That it’s alright to share my heart,
You won’t burn it and then depart,
You’ll understand it’s a gift freely given, a grace,
Something you’ll treasure when we’re together, embrace.
I’ll believe in true love because in,
Or true life meet-cute, you’ll me win,
I’ll see your flaws apparent, grin.
Because I have many of those too let’s swim.
To oceans where the breeze plays in sand and surf waiting,
For us to walk through tides rushing in, both debating.
The merits of some random item,
Verses some other thing enlighten,
Laying against your heart, hear beating,
The sound of safety completing,
No questions in my mind, though life together maybe hard,
We are two, in a partnership, sorting playing cards.
Life can be a serious game who wins?
Me or you? Important? Bigger things.
Letting you triumph because competition,
Fuels you, you’re happy — elation.
Sometimes I beat you; you get this look, how’d I do it?
I’m only a beginner; You have to remain with it.
Only a mere test, see frustrated,
Wondering how I beat you jaded,
I’ll never tell but, next game yours,
Your counting, I’m not keeping score,
I’ve won you next to me at night, dreamers dreaming.
You’re a good guy; delight in me, lips close, us breathing.
