Game of Life  by Penelope Jones 

Hey…

I was thinking,

I’d like to fall in love with you

 

You know…

 

Be with you ’til the end

While our hearts mend

I’ve been your friend

Let’s bend—

The Rules.

 

Let’s do this thing!

 

Pretend the past doesn’t matter

You can be my Mad Hatter

The commoners will scatter

Just see that you don’t splatter…

my heart.

 

And … I’ll do my part

 

You and me

I and you…

who knew?

 

Maybe I can let my walls down,

Giving you a reason not to frown,

and wear my princess crown…

 proudly.

 

Warnings were giving by you to me

I did the same, communication is key

 

Giving you chance after chance to run away

Yet you continue to speak to me each day

what can I say?

 

We’ve shared enough of our issues

That I’ve been through a box of tissues

 

But I don’t care

As long as you’re there.

 

I can’t stop thinking of

your gladness

your sadness

your madness

It’s really none of my business….

But I want it to be

 

So here’s my plea…

 

I was thinking I’d like to fall in love with you.

 

It’d be nice if you felt the same

come play the game

…of life

with me,

 …please?
