Something Good

When I found you,
Something good began.
Something good begun with it done,
When I found you to stop my running.

When I found you,
Something good began.
I almost ran from it.
Afraid to admit I was deserving,
Of happiness to receive...
And not resist it.

Something good began.
So good I felt like humming!

Hummm...
What is this?
Making me forget my commitment,
To not have my mind or my heart...
Tossed about and twisted,
Without sleep at nights to get.
Hummm...
What is this making me forget,
I'm at an age but not too old...
To feel again a puppy love!

When I found you,
Something good began.
Something good I had not felt,
Since gaining a few pounds.
And trying to disguise my weight,
Behind a tightened belt.
But you made me feel,
Something good about myself.
And I knew only you,
Could be the one to make me hum.
Like I had not done for anyone,
In decades!
