Perhaps I need a smile

To take my breath away

To brighten up my day

And keep myself believing.

Perhaps it takes a while

To separate dreams and mirage

To give and keep courage

And keep myself from leaving.

Perhaps it takes a wind

Blowing on stranger tide,

A word from the other side

That helps me reach out.

Perhaps it is a spark

That’s all that I need

To add to your deed

To fight an intense war.

Perhaps it takes a moment

To spend a life with you

And know fulfilment true

Even though you are gone.

Though surely I need none

To praise heavens above,

To simply fall in love

With what they call life.

– June 2013
