Bernard Snyder

(11-07-1959 / Savannah Ga.)


I've sailed around the world twice
I've swam in the Carribean seas
I've seen the sunset over many beaches
I've even dated celebrities,
I've shaken hands with former presidents
I've been taken to places I never knew,
but nothing was ever so breathtaking
than the day I first saw you,
not only were you so beautiful
but you spoke with such eloquence
in all my worldly travels
I haven't met anyone like you since
I've been asked many times
which has the most memorable view
I've seen a lot of fascinating things
but nothing as captivating as you!
