Sand in my eyes
You have showered me with roses petals
And have even picked away the nettles.
How in heavens name can I brew,
A bouquet as clever as you.
You made me sigh you made me cry
I even heard a laugh go bye.
I cannot top your elegance
Not even if I were a prince.
Some you said not true you know
But even if it were quite so
I think myself a simple man.
That is as much as I can.
I would not take away carefree
Nor would I thwart your flights of free.
And I will not tell you what you ought,
God forbid and perish the thought.
I see a twinkle in your eye.
I feel your mind in quick reply.
I do not question your beliefs,
Nor will I delve into your grief.
My one prescribe each day with jam,
You tell me just how grand I am.
