A Perfect Love


she lived alone in her small flat 
and hoped that she might meet some day
someone who'd love her (and her cat)
- a perfect love in every way

each day while waiting for the bus
she'd tell herself that come what may
she'd find 'the one', become an 'us'
- a perfect love in every way

it mattered not if he were small
(tall men are snapped up first they say)
as long as he would come to call
- a perfect love in every way

one night while waiting in the rain
"Let's share a cab" she heard him say
he liked her and he made it plain
- a perfect love in every way

such happiness now filled her life
they saw each other every day
he asked her would she be his wife
- a perfect love in every way

through all the years she'd not forget
the lonely times when life was grey
those endless days until she met
- a perfect love in every way
