Cheryl’s Song 12

You know when it’s true

You know when you

Have found the one

Don’t you?

They say it’s the way it’s supposed to be

My heart tells me

True love lingers

And doesn’t bleed

Yet he

Says things

That give me


Like the way he draws

The stares

Of other women

And cares

Enough to


His attention

Due me

He sees

So much

When he’s talking to me

I remember that about him

He had to see

Himself in others’ eyes

Not content to be in mine


I see

Where it’s going

He’s turned out to be

The same


Who hurt me


I’ll store

My feelings

For him

In a place

He can’t

Get to them

And have laughs

And drinks

Until it ends


I’ll be OK.
