He stood up and walked to the microphone, a little shy at first but he brushed the nerves off and toughened up. Cleared his throat, capturing the attention of the bar. Hers too. “Uhh hi, Umm, I’m not a poet really but I have a few things on my heart that I wanted to say tonight… to a beautiful lady, a special woman, the one I care about, the one I think about, the one who keeps me up at night…just thinkin.” She avoided his eyes pretending to be occupied with her drink.
Now I know not to put you on the spot like that,
But I wanna give a shout out to you,
The most…special…woman… in my life.
The one I care about,
The one who makes me wanna run out and shout,
About how much I’m burned.
And yea, I know were different,
You say you don’t want me cos were different.
But maybe that’s why we should be together.
Maybe that’s what brings us together.
You sayin I don’t know how to love you,
So teach me how to love you.
You hate my news and I hate your movies,
You even hate my football team,
And I hate your groupies.
But that’s what drives me wild about you.
I can learn to love you.
I can learn to like what you like.
Look at them curves, I love your shape.
I love your shape, I love your face.
I love your face, I love your eyes.
I love your eyes, I love your smile.
They say you can’t change a man.
A man’s gotta make the decision to change himself.
A man’s gotta find the inspiration to change himself.
Well girl you are my inspiration.
And I’m gonna change myself for you.
You say I’m Bad,
Think I need time cos you think am bad.
Yea I admit I had my ways,
But baby that was just a phase.
You say you wanna give me a minute,
But a minute ain’t what I got.
Cos I know a girl like you is hard to find.
Don’t give me a minute,
I don’t know much about you,
But I know you love music…
So let’s dance.
Let’s dance for the rest of our lives,
Let’s dance to the rhythm of life.
Let’s not care about a shit in the world.
Let’s just dance.
Dance with me…Just dance with me.
And I promise you,
I won’t stop dancing.
