Life's been good
Sometimes sublime
I've never needed more
Every day's a rhyme
I have lots of friends
Yes, money and fame
Escaped life's sorrows
No regrets or shame
I've cared for orphans
And assisted the blind
Taught eager students
Stretched theirs minds
Traveled all the world
Wrote a few lovely songs
Fought abject poverty
Many evils and wrongs
There's lots of things
I've been blessed to do
But one thing remains
And that's loving you

~Lyric Man

Note: This is a short story about a successful songwriter who is reflecting on his blessed and productive life. In a sense he has it all or almost all. Only one thing alludes him.. and that's what he longs for most.. to love the girl of his dreams.

I feel your notes distract me and change the focus of what I read into your poems, and now I am lost for words - my initial thought was you have lived and now it is time to focus on the person in your arms - yet, your note implies she is not even there. Quite the conundrum.
