“EVERYTHING I HAVE”* Christmas Morning – 2017. Monday. *: I Give To You – for M. 🙂
You fished me outta The Bargain Bin at the local “5 and dime!”
You bought me CHEAP, as damaged goods,
Attached: There was a rhyme:
Said: “This is J Jay – Here for you –
Who’s waiting for a girl, (pause)
To find this broken toy,
Who’ll fish him out and take him home and care for him all right,
And everything he has is yours – he’ll be your guiding light!!”
When I was bought, I looked straight up and saw your tear-filled eyes,
And fell in love with you right there; and breathed a million sighs!
You said: “Well, J Jay – Wanna Play?” and my heart skipped a beat,
And I said: “Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes,“ and you laid me in your seat!
“So-so, my J Jay – What you got? This EVERYTHING THAT’S YOURS?”
And I looked up into your face and said, in “kitten purrs:”
“Hi, my name is J Jay and I-know-what-I-got –
No money, lands or careful plans, but what I’s got’s A LOT!
I have not you; You have not me, for I can tell you true!
I am ‘The Lord’s,’
You are The Lord’s – And-I-don’t know what to do!
My little head is fluffy poo, so knowledge I have not –
This life’s a Great Big Mystery – But-I-still-know-what-I-got!
If you want all I have, My Dear, I’ll tell you very plain:
I got this MAGIC SOMETHING –
That’ll drive you quite insane!
I got just one thing, Honey Pie –
Can’t touch it, sell it, seek it, find it –
Where it is, I ain’t a clue –
BUT – It’s real, I’m sure, by goll.
IT IS THIS FEELING I HAVE FOR YOU – PLEASE LOVE YOUR LITTLE DOLL!”
