Almost Easy

It’s almost easy not to fall in love
With your contagious smile
That sets everything in place
Tells me that everything is fine
It’s almost easy not to fall in love
With your beautiful smile
That pierces into my soul
Soothes my crying heart
And brings out all the love in me
It’s almost easy not fall in love
With your dreamy eyes
That shine like the stars in the sky
Beckoning me to fall into their depths
It’s almost easy to not fall in love
With your pretty little nose
That caught me out of no where
Telling me that beauty is everywhere
It’s almost easy not to fall in love
With your soothing lovely voice
That makes my heart beat an extra beat or two
Telling me music is everywhere
If one listens carefully enough
It’s almost easy not to fall in love
With the way you say those words
That brings a smile on my face
Telling me how weirdly wonderful you are

It’s almost easy not to fall in love with you
It’s almost easy not to

Seasons of the Heart



After the cold stormy days
And the dark lonely nights
From the frozen ground of winter
Emerges a small yellow and green
Bringing color and with it
Hope and warmth
Spring promises a new life
And a new life it does give

Everyone comes out of hiding
As the flowers bloom
And as the birds sing
Come the monsoon rains 
Or the hot summer sun
These are happy days

 But soon the green yellows
And the trees strip naked
Taking all that was
And all that could have been

Soon enough cold follows
Some embrace it, some run away
It’s beautiful if one spends enough time
Even addicting to an extent

But however long it may be
The green will surely come
And the frozen ground will thaw
Giving another chance to grow again

"So how was the blind date?"
"I don't want to talk about it."
"It was that bad? What happened?"
"I told you, I don't want to talk about it. It's too embarassing."
"You just made me even more curious now. Come on man, except for our underwears we have shared everything with each other."
"Alright. She was great. Absolutely perfect. And we have a lot of things in common."
"Isn't that a good thing?"
"Not when one of the common "things" we share is an uncle."
"What!!!????"
"Apparently my grandfather and his younger brother didn't see eye to eye to the point that they cut off all ties to one another."
"Uh-huh. And?"
"She is his grand-daughter making her my second cousin."
........
"Everything was going great untill we started talking about our families. It was so embarassing. We didn't even complete our lunch."
"Man, I'm going to tell this story to my grandchildren one day."
"No you are not!"
"Oh, yes I am." 😆
