Life, Love and Infatuation



He was a little too old for this sort of thing. He met a lady and they seemed to hit it off just right. The more they saw each other the more he thought about her. But she just didn't believe his words, not that she thought he was not telling the truth but that he was acting like a teenager who was suffering from infatuation not love.


Try as he would she just didn't believe him. She was a realist and really had no time for romance which was for kids not the mature who would put the rush of infatuation behind them as they attended to the problem's that adults have which included attending to love on a more mature level.



He came to the conclusion that the only way to convince her of his true feelings was to use the lyrics of a great Nat King Cole hit called "Paper Moon". His main argument was why should only the young have the thrill of a kiss, the feel of a soft body, the dizziness of being with someone you love? These lyrics fit all ages and maybe age is only a number and who the hell believes in numerology anyway? So he sent these lyrics and hoped she would take the time to let the feelings of the written word come through.



 It is only a paper moon
Hanging over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me
It is only a canvas sky
Sailing over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me
Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played on a penny arcade
It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me
Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played on a penny arcade
It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me


Of course the ending to this fable is a happy one as she finally believed him as he expressed his feelings and of course she returned them Unrequited love is terrible but love shared is bliss.
