Simple Things

Written August 14, 2008

I don’t need a metaphor
Or even a simile
To describe all the simple things
That you do for me

I’m not saying that you’re simple
In fact, you’re very complex
It’s just that seeing your dimples
Means more than objects

I don’t need a reason
Or even a rhyme
To describe the emotions
I feel at night

I’m not saying I don’t love it
‘Cause you know that I do
It’s just that feeling your lovin’
Is always overdue

I don’t need a rhythm
Or a metronome
To keep the beat in my heart
Whenever you’re home

I’m not saying you’re the drummer
Even though that you are
It’s just that you’re my lover
No matter near or far
