“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 –

Your special-silly-boy,

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!”
