Love Song for Daniel*

*if/when he ever reads this. Jeff – don’t ruin the fun by telling him. Shh.

Off-prompt today. Thought I would pair yesterday’s break-up piece with a love poem consisting of others’ lyrics. These songs are all on a playlist I made for my husband when we just started dating. At the end of the poem, I’ve listed the songs in order of thievery.

The skies will be blue for all my life.
Wild thing, you make my heart sing.
You make my heart beat like the rain.

You’re what keeps me believing
the world’s not gone dead.
Say the word and I will follow you.

I’m thinking out loud:
guys my age don’t know how to love me.
My youth is yours.

Now I know that happiness goes on;
the sky is always painted blue.
In the cold light, I live to love and adore you.
