THE BALLAD OF ME AND YOU
To my husband who claims he's still crazy for me after all these years.
It was summer of 84, by chance, we met
We sat on the plane together ,you said hello
Not much to say I turned my head
I looked out the window ,I said Oh no!
We were in Paris for different reasons
You were in Paris for serious business
I was in Paris for the love I thought
But my heart was bleeding , I was a mess.
I was young,carefree and reckless
Cast all my cares for the love I seek
I could have sold my soul, if it was to be
Youth has its lessons,I had wounds to lick.
My story goes like a normal beginning
I met a man who woke my innocent soul
He flew planes and I was blown away
I thought for sure he is my all and all.
His dashing good looks in pinstripe suit
Those big blue eyes caress my sight
Been wined and dined like the goddess Venus
I was on top of the world beyond the tallest heights.
He lived in Paris but was never home
His grand career took him all over
He worked in Manila for a little while
He loved Manila but not forever.
I fell for him ,what girl wouldn't be?
I met a dashing knight so clever
He wanted me to love and cherish
I was naive and believed him altogether.
Come to Paris , he convinced me
I dropped my life and packed my bag
In a heartbeat, I didn't think twice
Before long, I'd see my love and hug.
Paris ,here I was, alone and hopeful
My bag and my new life,happily to unfold
But as time goes on, I noticed changes
The love of my life,in reality, is starkling cold.
Again I packed my bag and head back home
At Charles de Gaulle airport , I was all alone,
The love I thought was just an illusion
Homeward bound, I'm crushed to the bone.
So I sat with you on the plane that fateful day
You looked nice ,polite and friendly
That twelve hour flight was the bridge we crossed
It didn't take long before we were talking steadily.
It took awhile before I began to trust you
I was wary, to let my heart caught off guard
I was still enthralled with the love I left in Paris
But you persevered and didn't pressure me hard.
Finally, we moved in together
Still, I had doubts if this union is carved in bleak
Moving in , we both know this was a serious act
Deep in my heart, I knew we will click.
Your kindness and sweetness drew me to you
Your are smart with unassuming ways
And treated me with a smooth gloved hand
Hard to find a man like you,these days.
Honey,this I gotta tell you without doubt
You are my life and my love to last
We had our challenges along the way
Inspite of it , HONEY,you're a TOP class.
Twenty eight years later ,it has been,
We have traversed the road of matrimony
I have been blessed with the best of the best
Honey, we've lived a life of peace and harmony.
I feel lucky to have met you
I thank God, You , being there
I can never see myself with onother
Honey, I am going nowhere.
I AM HERE TO STAY.
Your crazy, naughty,sometimes wacky and full of antics wife. :-)
