Are you living and breathing
Coming and leaving
Are you going away
I need your ear today

Are you swimming in a pool
On this hot day of sun
Are you working like a slave
And it's less than fun

Are you moving to the other side
Of the States
Are there dishes to wash
Or food on those plates

Is it dinner or sleep time
Is it time for a deep rhyme
To come out of me
Just to be

In your head
In your bed
Is what I think about
In my time with my clout

I close my eyes
Wonder if skies
Of rain and thunder
Are there to put you under

The flowing waters that come
Flooding rains needed by some
To break the heat
Of city street

Leave your home
What are you doing
Here I am weak
And need a tuning

Only you can work on
Viruses and world be gone
I cannot take the world another day
'Till I get in his way

With: What are you doing?
Who are you pursuing
Do you miss me
Still want to kiss me

Out of depression
Out of recession
What are you sleeping on
How do you sleep with me turned on

Sitting here thinking of you
Writing with my eyes closed too
Typing what does flow
In this pea-sized brain I know

For a moment
Your torment
Or maybe your smile
For awhile

Your sight overcomes my soul
Wanting to roll
There with you in that bed
Cannot get it out of my head

When I close my eyes
Brilliance of your skies
Only light of one
And he is sun

Hot on my face
Cannot be replaced
My great desire
Setting me on fire.
