Just For Today (We Could Be In Love) - Poem by Charlie F. Kane

I sometimes wish I could fly,
Like all the birds,
Sailing on the sky of pale blue.
I want to fly so I could be free,
Because with you, girl, that’s something I could never be.
There’s nothing to keep us together,
We don’t like the same kind of music,
You’ve never seen the films I love,
And you’ve never read a book willingly.
If there’s nothing to keep us together,
Then we should enjoy the moment.
Maybe we could be in love,
Just for today.
There’s nothing,
Except lust,
To keep us together.
Maybe we could be in love,
Just for today.

I remember,
The warm summer night,
As you took my hand,
And we kissed,
Beneath the moonlit sky.
There’s just nothing to keep us together.
So we could be in love,
Just for today,
Because for us-
There’s no tomorrow.

    A bit poignant, a moment in time, a subtle desire, wonderful string of words.
