You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,

Love like you'll never be hurt,

Sing like there's nobody listening,

And live like it's heaven on earth.


"Can I Keep You?"
You're some foreign,
Distant object
that has caught
a young child's fancy
"Can I Keep You?"
Maybe not,
Maybe you're
not so foreign;
an old friend
rediscovered
"Can I Keep You?"
That young child
suddenly grows
into a loving
young adult
"Can I Keep You?"
Not so foreign,
Not so distant,
New familiarity,
Old aquantances
Renewed
"Can I Keep You?"
"If I've thought
of any reason to stay
that reason would surely be you"
"I Can Keep You?!"
"Yes,you can keep me.
Always and forever
So long as I'm with you"

I got in touch with a person who means alot to me after a number of years. They told me how they felt about me. This is a poem from my point of view of the situation.
