Just as I had hoped, we became better friends as
Each new moment passed while we were together.
Right now I find you very appealing as a
Really beautiful girl, like sunny weather.
I once felt forlorn, but that feeling has had
Less effect on me, right here and now.
Yet, as I’m beginning to find out what life’s about,
Never have I known where it was or how.
Ask me if I’m happy with my life:
Not yet, but it’s better than it’s been.
Do you feel the same or have you had
Enough of what you’ve already seen?
Reality has proven to be cruel to
Sentimental fools who know not how to start.
Of those who’ve been hurt before, I would
Not want to be without a dear friend’s heart.
(written in 1975)
