When she smiles under the sun

I know this game of love has begun

So playful, so sweet

Like an afternoon treat

Dancing like a child

Free and beautiful with style

Eyes that twinkle like a shooting star

In a single stare, recognition of a heart that reaches distances far

She sips her lemonade while my mind processes that I have it made

I don’t need to be her king

Simply make her smile

Let us let loose under a summer sky

Le us give in and believe free of a skeptic’s why

Originally children of god in a garden

Only with human weakness do our hearts harden

Sickness, evil and pain, are all part of the game

But a portion is hardly a degradation of the whole

Love and living seeks a greater goal

The sun, sky, stars and moon

Gifts from the gods

Not to be realized but celebrated on this fine afternoon.
