The Fool

I saw you far away, 

I hoped you will look my way, 

But I never did.



PS. This one was directly inspired by the song “A Day In The Life of A Fool”, a jazz standard popularized by Frank Sinatra and Perry Como. The music is based on a bossa classic originally known as “Manha de Carnaval” (Morning of the Carnival) from the old Brazilian film “Orfeu Negro” (Black Orpheus). It is one of my most loved bossa songs that I learned from my sister. I guess this is for people who look at others, but either do not seem to look back at them, or they themselves cannot, for one reason or another, look back the same way.
