Coming Together At The Seams

Everything's a gamble
even the surest thing a risk
all that's soft can conceal a bramble
even the warmest heart can be cool and brisk.

What brings us together can keep us apart
we won't always know what's in our own heart
so we dream what we dream on our own balance beams
and do our best to come together at the seams.

Coming together at the seams
as individuals or team
is life ever what it seems
coming together at the seams

Things can seem like this and seem like that
sometimes it's bliss sometimes old hat
sometimes a kiss and then a spat
sometimes you miss the old doormat

Yet we meet in midstream
hearts joined at the seam
two lives at full steam
it can feel like a dream

Coming together at the seams
Is life one long dream
or each moment exactly as it seems
in our eyes the kind familiar gleams
as we come together at the seams
