He calls to me “Hey Tiger Lilly”
And with rose red hue,
I reply “You're so silly”
Know this now to be true
I feel amazing when I hear that,
That simple turn of phrase.
It turns this tiger to a cat,
Who's little heart rate is now raised.
I profess the power of words,
I cannot stress this enough.
Tis not just a thing for the learned,
Tis not just some mindless fluff.
For I do wait quite willingly,
To hear you say “Hey Tiger Lilly”
Not quite sure what to say about this one.
See, this is me commenting on something my love interest calls me. And I was over came by a powerful urge to write this one. So I did.
So hey! Extra Valentines thing for my love.
Also with this, it is an introspection on the power of words for me. Now someone calling me Tiger Lilly will probably get me smiling.
