Can beer ever take the place of someone’s smile
Can it give you the feelings once felt
Can it bring you the smile that you long for
Can it really make your heart melt?

Can a touch bring you the joy you seek
Can a whisper give you the time to heal
Can a wink make you catch your breath
Can a laugh trigger a thought so real?

Can someone’s kindness make the room go bright
Can someone’s gestures take you back in time
Can someone’s expression let you feel again
Can someone’s body revive memories left sublime?

Can you answer each of these with words
Can you put your mind at ease
Can you ever let that person in
Can you feel the desire to please?

I hope you can always answer Yes.
