Tygrr Robertson

Rookie (January 19,1970 / Seattle Wa.)


I saw you first
on a summer's day
You fluttered by
without delay
To work to work
you had to be
Does she work
here with me?

I knew you were special
right away
Your love of life
eclipsed the day
Drawn to you
like a moth to a fire
Visions of you
brought me desire

I made my first move
in the walk-in cooler
That pickup line
should have got me no further
From that moment,
our friendship grew
It wasn't too long
until I fell in love with you

My love for you
has grown so strong
But if I kept you
would that be so wrong?
My love for you
is bitter sweet
You unable to give
what I yearn to keep

Flutterby Butterfly
I want to keep you near by
But if I did that
you would wither and die
My love for you
lives till this day
So flutterby Butterfly
flutter away...
Until the next time
...you flutterby my way
