If I wrote you all a romance,
Could I get you to peak into the book?
Could I get you to take a chance
On reading something you normally overlook?
Could I get you to join me in this dance?
If I typed a happy ending
Across the creases and tears in these pages,
Would you consider pretending
To notice all the heartache, doubt, and cries
That each came in waves and guided me through life’s stages?
If I gave you a comedy,
That made you chuckle and sigh–
That for a time filled your heart with glee–
Could I convince you to notice
The ever-present melancholy
That has ultimately made you and me?
