Someone to Watch Over Me

“There’s a somebody I’m longing to see
I hope that he turns out to be
Someone to watch over me…

I’m a little lamb who’s lost in a wood
I know I could always be good
To one who’ll watch over me…

Won’t you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh how I need
Someone to watch over me
Someone to watch over me…”

— George Gershwin

    I am not a poet and Iam sure it has some meaning to you…Anyway I wanted to stop by and say Hello!! and see if you could still remember this old blogger buddy …!!! I have been out of touch in the blogging world for quite some time and now there are like zillions of blogs which made me all the more enthusiastic to start blogging again!! If you have time drop by at my blog and do keep in touch!!!

    You are so right, BDSN, most poems we would quote must hold some personal meaning, yes? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am so glad to see you!! Last I knew, you had a new baby… must be a new toddler by now ๐Ÿ™‚ I will surely be by Taste Corner — welcome back!! ๐Ÿ™‚
