Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
I've had a bit of schooling in my lifetime. I've learned much
Of many things like mathematics, history and such
But I find there's an area that still befuddles meÖ
What is this inter-action that is known as chemistry?
Is there some instant recognition of one's mind, by chance
Which tells us we can love or trust another at one glance?
Does some electrical impulse help cause our brains to act,
Connect in some configuration to produce this fact?
I've felt it time and time again with strangers in the street
That I would never know or ever have a chance to meet
And yet, I knew if I would like them, quite instinctively
Due to this strange phenomenon that's known as chemistry.
Pets are very good at this. A dog can always tell
If one would be unkind to him or one would treat him well.
You want to know if Mr. Right is really right or wrong?
Agree to meet him for a date - and bring your dog along.
All that I mean to say is there must be some kind of fact
To cause like-minded souls to recognize and inter-act.
Some aura or some magnetism from some unknown part
Releasing unseen pheremones detected by one's heart.
You ask me how I know this force of Nature to be true?
I feel the same reaction every time I look at you.
The warm glow that envelopes me each time I see your face
Is proof enough a chemical event has taken place.
Then, through this strange reaction, cheeks take on a rosy blush
Small goosebumps make their presence known whene'er I feel your touch.
The palpitations of my heart begin and , yet, a peace
And calmness overtake me in harmonious release.
The light becomes much softer as I look through loving eyes
Which shine so bright I view new worlds in wonder and surprise.
Since that first time I saw your face, I've felt this change in me
And, though I understand it not, thank God for chemistry.
