Beguiled

She has a smile

That beguiles

A laugh that’s halfway to a sin

She blushes when someone sings her praises

She is a friend of mine

 

She corrals those crazy horses

Rides the pedal to the metal

The wind barely ruffles

Her blazing mane

Though we’ve never met

A meeting of the minds

Is so much more sincere

Than so many masks we wear

She is a friend of mine

She has a smile that beguiles

A laugh that’s halfway to a sin

 

Lighting up a room

Lighting up my face

All she has to do

Is look my way

 

She is a friend of mine

She questions what we find

Pushes boundaries and limits

Just can’t get beyond

The ocean in our way

    This has a songlike sense of wonder to it.
