Aretha.Love.Respect She was right there for all the times I fell in love

Aretha.Love.Respect

She was right there for all the times I fell in love

by Lee Paul,
first published: August, 2018
Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup

While combing my hair, now
And wonder what dress to wear, now

I run for the bus
While riding I think about us

At work I take time
And all through my coffee break time

Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart
And I will love you

Burt Bacharach and Hal David wrote in the incomporable I Say A Little Prayer. Sung so joyously by Aretha Franklin, I Say A Little Prayer articulates with unpretentious eloquence how everyone feels when they feel in love. And if you've never been in love, know, this is how it is gonna be.

I like to look at things while listening to things I am not looking at. But doesn't everyone.

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
