What I Am


what I am
I am a man
my identity confirmed
I've been burned
to the blue I turned
don't be too concerned
my lesson's already learned
about to make a change
I know it sounds strange
I feel it every time
she writes my name
she thinks i'm playing a game
but it will drive me insane
if she don't feel the same

what I am
she already knows
a man waiting for love
waiting for her
wanting to give
a man needing love in return
that's been lonely too long
that she can have forever
a man she can love
she can call her own
that would never do her wrong
a man who loves her as she is
who would never want her to change
who would do anything to please her
a man, a man, a man what I am
she already knows

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
