The One We Choose
(c) 2013 Pamela Cardullo Ortiz

A Paris night, the moon is bright upon the land
A crowded street where lovers meet, you brush my hand.
Just to think we’re passing there and no one cares what we might do or say
Every walk of life is there and every form of life is on display.
In such a place so full of strange and different views
We’re free to love the one we choose.

You take me to establishments with finer fare
No longer small or scared, equal of any there
Maybe we’ll sit down to tea, with china cups and dainty things to eat
And leave together, arm in arm, we’ll stroll the streets
In such a world, the two of us would not be news.
And we’re free to love the one we choose.

The feel of silk upon my skin, and I’m renewed
Perhaps in the right setting I’m a lady, too.
Who’s to say the difference between a lady and her serving maid
Isn’t just a pair of silken stockings and a gown of silk brocade
As music of the cafes fills the avenues
We’re free to love the one we choose.

We work together, side by side, just me and you.
The ordinary things enhanced when done as two.
Isn’t it a mystery that love can be around you all the time?
Who’s to say it’s not the way God planned,
It was just what God designed.
Together we can claim a right we cannot lose,
We’re free to love the one we choose.
