Memories of Past Presents
Tour of Duty
More Poetry >>
Why do you think we spend so much time,
Trying to fall in love,
We look for the one that would be so sublime,
That we would make it to heights undreamed of.
This is something that we all long for,
To find the one that is right for us,
So new horizons we can explore,
Without any worries or mistrust.
Why is so hard do you think,
To find this person we seek,
Someone who will take us to the brink,
Someone that is so unique.
If you really want to know why this is,
Then listen closely to what I say,
Although I am not really a wiz,
At why we go astray.
We look for the image we have in our mind,
The one that we all know we have,
Of the one that above all others shined,
Although appearance really is less than half.
A person's heart is what really counts,
But you won't see that in a picture,
What matters most is what amounts,
To a love that would forever endure.
Just remember that each one you meet,
Could be the one you are looking for,
Do not judge until you have a complete,
Picture of what's behind their door.
