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.

The 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 doubts if 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
was it love. or was 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 against the wall.

No matter what the fear may be.
He must 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 fears… that we fear we will loose..

The reality of life – is we only have now…
we must push past the fear of loss, somehow.

All it take 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 to dance.
that means we’re willing to take a chance

A chance to learn, to grow, 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, tobe seen, heard, known, touched, and loved.
