Not Quite Puppy Love


We don’t have many tomorrows
And I’d like to spend them with you
If our paths continue together
I’ll go anywhere they lead me to.
I have no view of the future
Or what events that it may bring
But as long as you’re beside me
I’m ready to face anything.
My heart smiles when I see you
And your voice can brighten my day
And my whole body tingles
When you look at me that way.
We can still be so childish
Playing and joking around
And we can share the excitement
Of reaching unfamiliar ground.
And as our bodies are aging
I will still want you to be there.
To hold you, touch you and kiss you
Let you know that I’ll always care.
But mostly I want to be near you
For the rest of my days,
Being with you makes me happy;
And I hope that it goes both ways.

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
