Simpleman – Seeking Happiness & Love

Silently seated in the darkness alone,
he swiftly types his message of introduction.

She’s told him everything she believes will appeal.
He thinks she’s real cool. She thinks he’s the real deal.

His message flashes across the night,
carrying hope, uncertainty, and fear of blight.

After All…He is just… a Simpleman.
And she’s trying everything she can.

His fear runs deep and almost through.
Can she love him, what’s he to do?

She tries to smile a friendly smile,
which she only holds for a brief while.

Her past experiences colour her perceptions of man.
Can he measure up, she hopes that he can.

So much is done by men of past.
Their behaviors damming to the last.

Did they behave like pigs and swine,
because of shame, or fear, or too much wine?

She holds her breath until the end.
Is It love. or is it just a friend?

Why does she cry, why does she wail?
What’s in her baggage, what is her tale?

He carries the burden of final-call.
He’s where the buck stops, back against the wall.

No matter what the fear may be,
He will stand and protect all of thee.

Why is it we all have this fear?
What is it that is not so clear?

Where is safe and certain for this man to be?
A Simpleman seems so insufficiently.

Whatever happened to life-long love?
What is it that breaks our trust and love?

So many things to consider
So many things to choose.

So much past fear
… that we fear we will loose.

The reality of life – is… we only have NOW!
We must push past our fears of loss, somehow.

All it takes is a decision to try… to explore, to play,
to see if this can be, the special one, from today.

There is no certainty in this life.
There is no really perfect man and wife. 

As adults alone we can choose how to dance.
That means we’re willing to take a chance.

A chance to learn, to grow, and to see,
just exactly what happens- is really up to WE.

For love comes softly…where?  We never know.
But nothing happens until our hearts, we show.

To find true love, we must fully share our Souls.
For in life 2, masks dancing, never get their true goals

At our core: we desire to love, to be seen, heard, known, touched, and loved.

And to achieve that, we must be brave, open and  willing to embrace
the only place where we have that potential: Right NOW.
