It took a while for me to warm up to Tom
I couldn’t see the point of it all
Why almost everyone was in awe with him
Why they liked him at all.
He was easy on the eyes
But not someone I was attracted to immediately
I nodded as they said how handsome he is
Although I didn’t think so, but then that was just me.
Then for some reason I dreamt of him
As if my brain was trying to tell me something
That one dream changed it all
And out of nowhere, I felt everything.
I couldn’t shake the thought of him
I couldn’t get him out of my mind
So I slowly tried to know the man
To see what I can find.
I found out he was kind and polite
That when he gave you his attention, he listens and remembers
That he’s a real gentleman and a wide reader
And he loves the feel of December.
He had faults, he isn’t perfect
And he doesn’t try to be or pretend to be
He can be a charmer when he wants to
And silent when sad, much like me.
He’s the guy you’d be proud to introduce to your dad and mom
Yes, that’s him…. That’s Tom.
I didn’t fall for him, not at first
I admired the man, that’s the truth
And slowly I understood
Why people liked Tom so much.
