Mi Corazon

Wrap around 	me
just so

string yourself through the needle of time
chase the froth of foam lipping the tide
let my nascent heart tap 	with the tip of your toe
samba, slow dance, make romance 

Oh wrap yourself 	around me
just so

slide down the capo 	across the strings
through this opening in cosmic signs
birth the waiting wonder of my love	mi corazon
limb to limb	entranced, your head inclines

Wrap yourself around me
just so
just so

pluck me from the moving melody   of rhyme
dip with me as the moonlight strides
let my petals curl  with the click of heel I love you so	 
samba, slow dance, make romance 

Wrap around 	me
just so


*Meant to be sung to Peter White's song “Life Story”.

    Oh, how I love your lyrics, Deb. I could feel the melody in each verse and loved the way you let it "wrap around" you. Congratulations, dear. Love, Carolyn

    I sure enjoyed this one the best of them all, I think. I have not checked Carrie's yet but I have seen many of the others and this WAS my favorite among those others, I'm sure. Nette's very good too!!!
