A Break From All the Happy-Talk

I know, I never have a happy or joyous post, almost. I seem to be stimulated by debate and endless controversy. Here, however, is a poem that I wrote to be a song, perhaps in the key of G. Use this lyric to hum along in your head…


I’ll bring the love

And you bring the charm.

You’re banter’s attractive to me,


I’ll bring the love

And you bring the beauty.

Our admirers need something to see


So I’ll bring the love

And you bring the rest

I’m sorry that’s just how it must be.


Because my dear I’m not worthy

And some day you’ll see,

There isn’t a thing

For you here in me–

Except for my love ,

My bottomless love,

My endless, tireless, worthless love.


You bring the money

And Ill bring the love.

Were gonna need food to survive.


You bring entertainment

So I can bring love.

Our laughter can keep us alive.


Then you can bring happiness,

While I can bring love,

Cuz without it why even try?


Because my dear Im not worthy,

And soon you must know,

I only bring love, wherever I go–

Only undying love,

This enduring, sustaining, everlasting love


If you brought the love

I know how it’d be.

Im unable to do things like you.


If you brought the love

then I know id fall short.

We wouldn’t make it on things that I do.


If you brought the love

then we just cant last

Just try living on love and were through.


Because my love Im not worthy

to make your love be

as great as the love that you’re getting from me.

It’s just too  much love–

It’s terrific, fantastic, gigantic love.
