If you should fail to notice
How I primp each word with care
Shading lightly on the phrases
Tweaking sentence here and there.
For I know if I'm not careful
With the way I make things rhyme
Or show lack of inspiration
When you spend such precious time.
That my words will paint me careless
And haphazard in things I say,
Or show loss of resolution
From a mind that's run astray.
It's only that I'm happy
To have this chance to play
And touch some little feeling
Giving smiles along the way
For it's one great way to know you
As I string these words with care
And find some friend looking forward
To a thought I have to share
