Knowing always he would lose all he held dear,
So he would poison those things he had any time
As better strike first than have face in the grime.
This boy dreamed of good, he could even be great,
But failing was all he knew as his fate.
So he never allowed himself to be known,
Choosing instead a life all alone.
He thought he was damaged beyond all hope
And that one day he'd find his neck in that rope
But from the edge of reason, when He thought He was loopy
Came into his life a girl he called Snoopy.
And Snoopy made of this boy a great man,
She loved him as only a soulmate can.
Little by little he came in from the cold
And came to accept the things he was told....
'You are so lovely', Snoops said, 'you are perfect for me'
And 'if you don't believe me, you just wait and see'....
And you know what? This wise Snoopy's so right,
This boy feels dragged from his dark to her light.
And at long last his life is worth all of its pain,
Sunshine beams through the cloud and the rain,
Snoopy's that sun, she's the warmth in his heart,
She will love him at end as she did from the start.
Now shortly two loves will soon become three,
With the addition of a little baby Snoopy or me,
And life is now whole as great as can be,
And for the first time I realise I just love being me.
A reformed recidivist....
