"THE whole truth and nothing but the truth…”
Was your life.
You never saw
Me staring at you.
I had to make contact
Just to reveal my feelings.
Once I did the unthinkable.
Before classes had begun one morn,
I snuck into the boys’ room with a pen.
A heart I drew with our initials too,
And I thought you’d know it came from me.
I noticed the spring in your step
And hoped you would approach me.
Instead you walked to Chris
No! Same initials,
But the wrong girl
Got a date.
Your mate –
T rumpet-playing, surfer boy
O pened his heart to the wrong woman
M usic of their love, emanates from their happy home
