There is a risk I would like to take
Invite someone to meet with me over a meal or a drink
For the sake
of having the time to chat and to know
to talk and to grow
The potential is there for a good ‘sisterhood’
It was blemished, when it should have been good
But this is what happens when things are not clear
And rivalry exists when there is no need.
When messages are misunderstood.
Women should be able to stand together
To support each other, whatever the weather
This is sometimes blown wide apart
Due to divided loyalties
How does this start?
A woman and a man get it together
Fall in love, what could be better?
Emotions and hormones and beautiful thoughts
And dreams and plans
Of a future together.
Of money and plans of working together
Of travel and babies and loving each other
Of waking up each morning to see
That face, that body
That ordinary spectacularity.
Maybe it will happen at some stage soon
I would revel in a good debrief
An honest conversation, a real relief
We could clear the air
I would like that, and if it happens I would really care.
