In a Perfect World

In a perfect world
Eye contact would be followed by
A respectful greeting
Conversation would be received
Without fear of ulterior motives
Friendships would precede relationships, and
Breakups would result in friendships

In a perfect world
Smiles would be honest
And frequent

Attitudes would be upbeat
And pleasant

Sincere compliments would replace
Resentful hate

And words,
Would be straight forward
And said with the compassion
Of love

In a perfect world
You would understand
I am not after anything you have,
God has already given me plenty;
But I am open
To learning from you
And helping us to grow.
