Mr Right

Maybe god had planned somebody else
for me
Maybe with the right one it would finally
be easy
But darling for you, that I would
gladly miss

My Mr Right, whom I could’ve brushed past
on this street
where he and I should have met and fell
in love but instead
I was distracted by how in my hand
yours rightly fits

Darling for you, I would happily deliberately
miss
He — maybe tall and bright and so called
my meant-to-be
But ah, look at you! Making painful effort
attending to my selfish whinings

So dear Mr meant-to-be, please do take
my sincere apology
I won’t be attending our date ’cause on
weekends I’m really busy
living, laughing, sharing life with him —
my best friend, lover, partner to eternity
