Be the Magic

When you come into this world, love,

You’ll meet liars and you’ll meet pervs

You’ll meet those who are indecisive

And can’t decide which face to choose

They’ll wear one at times

And at times they’ll be confused.

 

When you come into this world, love,

You’ll meet those who live many lives

Because apart from leading their own,

They also want a peek into yours and mine.

 

When you come into this world, love,

You’ll find friends who are true

But you’ll also find with them

Some of those who wouldn’t do

When you need someone to count upon

And so, my love, wait a minute or two

Before you expect them to walk in your shoes

And really hold your breath

Before you check to see if they’ll walk with you.

 

When you come into this world, love,

You’ll see those who follow strange diets

For apart from feeding upon others’ miseries

They like a relish of salacious gossip on the side.

 

When you come into this world, love,

I wish I can teach you to tell

One person from another

And I wish I can help you avoid

The roads where you’re sure to collide

With those who you’ll wish you hadn’t met.

 

But instead, my love,

I shall tell you to follow

The itinerary that your dreams dictate.

For when you come into this world, love,

You’ll be the only person you can create.

 

And so when you come into this world, love,

And people cross your way

Offer them kindness – perhaps in your silence –

Be the magic that makes them wonder

How you manage to hold your sway.
