"A Piuva Tree" #POETRY w/Diana Krall "Just The Way You Are" #The WayUR #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:

But the you who you are tonight is the same you I was in love with yesterday, the same you I’ll be in love with tomorrow.
― Gayle Forman

The Piuva or Pepper Tree is native to my second homeland of Brazil.

A Piuva Tree

Amazing what this man's to me,
I had coffee whilst he had tea.
Sitting under a Piuva tree,
as sunrises reflecting onto the sea.

We spoke for hours; it seems,
beneath this dazzling  pepper tree.
And I learned what I already knew,
he’s a man I completely love; it’s true.

Boldly, I ask him to join me again,
so we could watch boats maneuver in wind.
He said, yes! As my heart flipped twice,
and oh lord! He’s not only sexy but nice.

As we prepare to get up and go,
he reaches over kissing me you know!
At this point I’ve lost track; what comes next,
except a flood of warmth rolling down my neck.

The song that I have selected to accompany this poem is the fabulous Diana Krall with "Just The Way You Are"(2). Why? Listen to the words... When you don't know what to do or where to go... you go with your heart. 

Published on YouTub on Oct 7, 2009 by DianaKrallVEVO, this song is considered  jazz, soul and R&B.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Just The Way You Are" (3)
Don't go changing, to try and please me
You never let me down before
Don't imagine you're too familiar
And I don't see you anymore

I wouldn't leave you in times of trouble
We never could have come this far
I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
I'll take you just the way you are

Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care

I don't want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are

I need to know that you will always be
The same old someone that I knew
What will it take till you believe in me
The way that I believe in you

I said I love you, and that's forever
And this I promise from the heart
I could not love you any better
I love you just the way you are

I don't want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to

I want you just the way you are

Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight! Thank you for your support and I hope you have a blessed evening or morning...

Love and Peace D~
