To Live Together
By Rick Rucker
I hate to have to live alone,
Our love must be shared, on the phone,
Meeting seldom, but as we can,
Not a fun prospect for this crazy man!
She knows that I love her, can’t stand to be apart,
Not since she captured my Mind, and my Heart,
Just lately, we have found a ray of hope,
Drowning in the Sea of Love, we found a lifeguard’s rope,
We found a place where we could live,
To each other, our Love we would give,
To awaken with her next to me,
I would be so glad, and anguish free,
I did not even have to scheme,
To be able to realize this dream,
Luckily, for the both of us,
She goes about business, without fuss!
When she asked me if I wanted to live together,
I told her, my response dealt with when, and not whether!
I told her, it would take me minutes to pack,
And to carry my stuff, across town on my back!
Whatever that I had to do,
I would show her, that my love is true,
Imagine, the two of us, living together,
Through all the lovely Summer weather,
I love heat, her not so much,
She thinks that an ice tray, is almost warm to the touch!
Of the heat thing, we will have to take care,
I will run the heater, she can use the air!
