My Heart Skips A Beat



The old saying, “my heart skips a beat” Held no meaning until now I'm living proof it happens every day When I get a message, POW! Heart starts pumping a mile a minute Can't focus to press the right key Eventually I'm able to find the right one And her loving words I see Head starts spinning, fingers tremble Reading the first loving line Just as I imagined, her words excite me Must respond to her love in kind So I type, retype, and type again I'm finally happy with the end I read it through a couple more times More changes then I hit the 'send' It's gone and I worry, “did I say it right?” Hope she understands, this friend Then anxiously wait, it seems like forever She replies and it starts over again Starts all over, my heart skips a beat Life had no meaning until now I'm living proof, it happens every day Never been this happy, holy cow! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon's worried... Where's Cathie that she has to SEND a message... You didn't chase her away, did you? ... No Dragon! I'm sure he didn't get her to walk into any walls! And yeah, I said I was sorry... About as sorry... as when you bombed my roses 5 minutes before! Not!... LOL... Don't worry! Cathie'll come back! Who do you think inspires the love notes! ... They are too... love notes! ... How would I know? Ask Mike that question... Silly Dragon!... Hey Dragon! Splat! Whoops! Gotta run! ... LOL

    Ah, thank you for clarifying that my friend, now that makes since. Ha ha, Kenny Rogers, I think I see the resemblance! I think I'll keep with your real name, Kenny seems to be a special name from her. That seems to be a lot of fun for you two!!

    LOL That's hilarious Russell! Eileen once commented that I look like Kenny Rogers so ever since, Kenny is it whenever we talk. And I call her Miss Boop because someone once referred to her as, "Betty Boop from Beirut"! LOL Now you know... have a great day, my friend!
