The Look of Love

What does love look like?

Love looks like yesterday
The skipping rope cast away
As recess ended in school
And Travolta’s eyes were so blue
Those boys in flared trousers
Like knights in shining armours
When in discos we actually went to dance
And books made us believe in romance
You looked pretty enough in your own skin
Not yet pressured to become thin
When flirting was with our eyes
Not through a screen that hid lies
No drinks or drugs to have fun
Nor fancy gadgets to impress anyone
Words of the Bee Gees would once suffice
With pocket money we had to improvise
Yes today relationships easily fade away
And love …
Well love looks like yesterday

Yesterday I believed in love…
…Today love believes in me :-)
