I flip through Webster’s pages to find
The definition of equal
You hear the word all the time,
but what does it really mean?
-Of the same measure, quantity or value
Equal, is the word that comes to mind every time I think of you
Intelligent, to the extent of a philosopher,
I’d put you up there with Aristotle and Plato.
Your knowledge is so vast, I am constantly
consulting the dictionary to define the words you said last
Everything you say needs to be documented, like quotations from MLK
You are honest- you say what you mean
And mean what you say
Extremely funny, and maybe even a little insane
A born leader, craves the power, but could do without the fame.
Um can I say fine?
Those lips, sexy dimples, fresh cut, rocking a polo shirt,
you turn me into someone I don’t recognize-
a giddy little school girl and a flirt
Walk like you know who you really are,
And if others don’t, they’ll find out soon enough
Sensitive on the low, but act real tough.
We’re so alike we’re different, but different in a good way
We complement each other like night and day
If one falls the other will rise…
Equal, I never thought I would meet you,
Wasn’t quite sure if you existed…
but now that you’re here, I don’t know what to do
I don’t believe in duplicates, there is only one equal
But what do you do when your dream is right in front of you, when
Your fantasy hits you between the eyes,
maybe run and hide?
Can’t explain it but in you I see a light
I’m blinded by the glare, despite everything
and more than anything else, I want you here,
My equal, to rise when I fall, and to carry me
when I can’t stand at all.
But I don’t know how to make magic appear
so in time you will be a memory, an experience to share
I will never forget you, no matter what happens or what you do
I’ll remember that night, the first time I saw you,
the times you made smile,
and everything we used to do
