Poem - Don't Say it Baby

A friend told me something shocking. They said that they don't photograph well. I was taken aback, not able to express my denial of a blatant untruth. The song / poem “Don't Say it Baby” is my rebuttal to my friend's words.


Don't Say it Baby
Bonus Poem for Day 157 – 20150606

Don't say it baby,
denying that you photograph well.
You are my focus,
as I seek beauty's measure in this life.
Taking a photo,
the camera loves you and so do I.

Baby baby, don't say it
baby baby, you are it.

The hair might fall down
across a face that the lens longs to capture.
The small blemishes
are part of the whole of magnificence.
I'll photograph you
and then we'll dance so I can see you up close.

Baby baby, don't say it
baby baby, you are it.

Quick to lovely smile,
steal my breadth as you dance with me tonight.
Could I be so lucky
that you will spend some precious time with me.
Elegant lady,
please see the enchantress you've become.

Baby baby, don't say it
baby baby, you are it.

Don't say it baby,
just know that you are a lovely as they come.
I'll snap your photo,
to prove your elegance to the world as a whole.
And then we'll dance
the greatest treat a guy can wish for tonight.

Baby baby, don't say it
baby baby, you are it.
You are beautiful.
