Persuasion - Poem by DonnaDeLong Matthews

What do Ya think
the chances would be
of me getting you
to come with me

To walk down
this road of life
to cast away
the loneliness and strife

Everything is so much better
when by two are shared
The storms are not so fierce
and easier faired

The rose's aroma
are much sweeter.
and troubles
are ever so lighter

So with a little persuasion
what is the chance
of you and I sharing
a life long dance
