Where Did that Tenderness Go?

Where Did It Go??

.

.

.


I was young and not so dumb

you were a year older my dearest blond

Wish I was a year older to show you I was the one

you just chose the older dude, a damn Navy Seal


Every time I turned 14 or 15

you were already 15 and then 16

wasn't able to catch with you

dancing near your window

to show you the real me


Pants too big, skinny and not so strong

but with a heart that now you wish you had

where was that tenderness that you gave me in dreams

waking up to see my dog licking up my nostrils yuck oh please!


now I'm older and mature enough to blow your mind

but your presence in tender years made me strong

not ready to give up my own world

accepting the way I am...dear Susan


Sensitive enough to write poems about you and me

thanks to those early experiences that made me unique

I guess my platonic dream was just a wishful thing

thanks anyway for still having me as a friend


As the melody goes, I was a child with tender thoughts

walking my own walk as you passed me by


not old enough to arouse deepest feelings inside that mind

but I tried and tried, and broke my back doing that break dance


Cool enough to be who I am

a guy who can have fun and dance

with no refrain when the beat pumps up that jam

finally I let it out in this inspiration of mine

thanks a lot dear Susan,

you did change my early years and my whole life!!

    Voted up and beautiful. You tell it very well. I really liked this. Been too much unanswered and longed for love in my teens as well. Seems I never knew what to really look for but the daydreams were well worth it. No lasting friendships though.

    Thanks Gypsy Rose,

    We were denied proper care from the other sex....but did survived. Would've hateit being just a pretty boy with not mind or imagination. So I take the positive side of this.

    Hey Picklesandrufus,

    You always popping up in my hubs, one day might show up near you down south. I guess I have the ladies attention, since I don't like this Super Bowl craze as much as I should. Thanks for your words!

    Good Morning mary,

    Feel loathed with joy, when I see you around. Hope your Vacation in Puerto Rico went well.This was an inspiration that came as I was listening to this song. The good old times came around and felt like 16 again. Terdeness, where was it, darn you life for quicking me out of my nest!

    I am still on the Enchanted Island for another week or so. I'm beginning to get a little homesick. I just did a Hub on Old San Juan in Puerto Rico if you interested in that sort of thing. See you again soon, I hope.
