"Home" Now, Next Stop....."Marriage"


I packed my things

To move into my place

Another home in another town

I placed a smile

__or should I say a grin?

Upon my face

__as my heart laughed

I had the giggles all night

When I first moved in

Lucky as fuck

__and we did not break up

I bent the spoon concentrating on my independence

Finally, I have it

Now for 2 years I will work on my way

Into missing living at my babe's more

So that when we wed

My heart for her home will grow fond for again

And we will live happily ever after

If God permits us marrying

All I gotta do is get sick and tired

Of my confined space

That is so limited

And then I won't be happier anywhere else

Than at her pad

Just like before our trial marriage

And we can have a complete home

With us both

We will spend everyday together

Just like I always wanted

And as the years go by

__it can only get better

Books will get filled

All with her written in them

Making my head spin in love

Like I just can't get enough

That is the next step

All I have to do is survive

Every one I know says I'm "not gonna die"

Could they be right?
