228 (who?)
Can we just  pretend ?
Like we did when we were kids?
I can pretend to be strong
And use these twigs
To build a mansion for you
So large and beautiful
That you'll have everything you need.
I can pretend to be smart
And I'll teach you new things every day
Gently widening you eyes
To the world around you.
I can pretend to be a musician
Your own private concerto
Sing lullabies to you each night
With the few notes I know.
I can pretend to be funny
And have a witty criticism
For all the things you dislike
And sweetly teasing you
Till you gift me with your smile.
I can pretend be wise
Have an answer for all your problem
And  advice that never fails.
I can  pretend to be a cook
And delicately create
Mudpies for you to eat
As though they  were gourmet meals.
I can pretend to be someone I'm not
Someone who's beautiful or amazing or kind
Someone  who won't let you down
Someone who won't break your heart
Someone  who can give you everything
You could ever want
Someone  who won't treat you
Like your the most precious thing in the world
I can be anyone you want me to be
For  as long as you'd want me

So can you pretend  too...
Just for  a little while?
That you're happy...
That you love me?
That's all I need
Even if its just pretend.
I originally was writing a piece about two lovers playing "house" together but ummmm it turned into this :shrug: . No cover this time so hope it does okay. Hope everyone enjoys :D.

I really enjoyed the start, although the punctuation kind of interrupted the flow for me. The examples were really sweet and they appealed to me. 
You made me wish what you wanted by sharing a feeling many have.

I love the beginning with the examples :)
But in the end everyoe should always be honest with each other and not just pretend to. ~

beautiful. Thatīs what we men do everyday. We endure and pretend to be heroes to protect our princesses.
