Great Expectations

My expectations are high

I want to find a love that will lift me to the sky

I’ve got this crazy idea in my mind

You’ll be the love I’ve been hoping to find

but you’re just a guy

destined to make mistakes


We give and we take

along the way

We hope for something more

but this is all we’ve got

I’m just a girl

and you’re just a guy

We’re both hoping for a love that will lift us to the sky


If we look hard enough we can see the stars

do they shine in you

like I want them to…

I love the ending of your poem Mika: an eternal question, asked by lovers everywhere and throughout history:

If we look hard enough we can we see the stars
Do they shine in you
Like I want them to...

Indeed it is. When the excitement and novelty wane, we have to realize we're all just human.

The start of a new relationship is always such an exciting time. So many possibilities and so much to discover and learn. When things could still go anywhere it's hard not to let your imagination run wild. It's an intoxicating feeling. Nicely expressed!
