 Reflections of My Heart

Hero ღ KKD ღ


 I come here night after night
Always seeing the same faces
Am I looking for love
in all the wrong places

I sit at my usual table
and order my usual drink
Here Sir, as the waitress sets it down
and I thank her with a wink

The room is dimly lit
with candles on each table
but I see sitting at the bar alone
the most breathtaking damsel

Her hair is like spun silk
and dark as midnight
Her shape is the finest
under her dress skin tight

Her legs are firm and shapely
and stretch for miles
She is the type of woman
behind every man's smiles

Dare I approach
this goddess of the night
with the hopes
that a love so true could ignite

With conviction in my heart
if nothing ventured nothing gained
I rise to my feet
with the beat of my heart uncontained

As the top of her glass
her finger traces
I wonder am I looking for love
in all the wrong places

Am I missing my life's chance
as I turn to go
Left always wondering
if I could be her hero

Let Me Be Your Hero

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
 I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
