DELAY IN FLIGHT DEPARTURE

The plan was to go deep
Touch with flight of ideas

Leave her wondering if
Why or when I'd return

Rock candy given often no taffy here babe
They questioned, glad she decided so I stayed

My mission took three days
Couldn't hit it and cease fire

Leaving her in total dismay
June's strawberry jam real sweet

Candy
Passion
Slowly
Traveled

Sugar
Honey
Circle
Navel

Rise
Up
Fall
Down

Sit
Ponder
Weak
Enjoyed

From my bedroom balcony
Flew her to Paris, France

Two tickets days apart
Just in case jet lag lingered

Peppermint and passion berry climbing clever
I stated my case there were others besides her

From my bedroom balcony
Flew her to Paris, France

Two tickets days apart
In case jet lag lingered

Candy
Passion
Slowly
Traveled

Sugar
Honey
Circle
Navel

Rise
Up
Fall
Down

Sit
Ponder
Weak
Enjoyed

Eight ball on the break
Close but didn't scratch

Five rails in the corner
For years a practice shot

Sugarcane and jumbo jaw breakers slow poked
To be good at billiards calls for the proper stroke

The plan was to go deep
Touch with flight of ideas

Leave her wondering if
Why or when I'd return

Candy
Passion
Slowly
Traveled

Sugar
Honey
Circle
Navel

Rise
Up
Fall
Down

Sit
Ponder
Weak
Enjoyed

Ah, I wonder with curiosity how this fared, set to music!
