To be in love (or out of it)
It's a state of mind
Particularly if
you don't mind
being in a.... state!

To be in love (or out of it)
It's a state of mind
Especially when
alone in the bus,
you remember and smile.

To be in love (or out of it)
It's a state of mind
your heart is my favourite state
And I am your lucky president...
..You don't mind, do you?

Mmma.... to be in love is a wealth beyond price.
costs nothing,but is a richness beyond compare.
Once gone and forgotten,then your poor again.

Only the dreams can bring the richness back again.

Well done.

cheeky and wise
being in that state yes so much a state of mind and thus surely a choice...?and then 'it' happenss and any sense of choice seems to have been swiped away from you so i love that end "you don't mind do you?" very wry, very dry
great poem enjoyed it a lot and all the more when i re-read it

'State of mind' or perhaps in other words your response is what counts, not the circumstances.

Simple, honest, direct piece, that speaks.
