Learning to Love

It’s crass, I know,

But I’ve always dated for a checklist.

Always dated with the idea of a plan

Coming before the man

Sitting in front of me.

Will he be one half of a great child?

Will he be one half of a great paycheck?

 

With you, I don’t see the gene pool,

I see the dad laughing with a child,

I see that my checklist doesn’t matter

When I could smile like this every day

From now on

If you’ll have me.

 

I just can’t tell

If you’ll have me.
