This is dedicated to Sam Hightower, a very good friend of mine from Arizona. I have had only a couple of poems that came as songs. This is one of them. I also chuckle because it came to me while I was in the bathtub (is that TMI). LOL I hope you enjoy it.



Here I am all gathered in
Baby I want to feel your skin
Way deep down inside
I just want to stay and hide.

Gathering up on limbs of trees
Not so good on your knees
With your dog along your side
No way that you can hide.

Baby, baby I want under your skin.

Planting, seeding along the way
Bringing a much brighter and better day
With his camera in his eye
Sam can play along in I Spy.

With a heartfelt handshake and grin
Who will know where it will begin?
I hope it will never end!
Just that he can always bend.

Baby, baby I want under your skin.

I will always be a friend to you.
No one better and fresher than dew.
Don’t change, stay just the same.
Or I’ll be on you for their name!

A moment given somewhere in time
You are given life and more in this rhyme.
No better friend anyone can have
Or on a hurt you are like a salve.

Baby, baby I want under your skin.
