Deep in that heart of yours

is the happiness you say only I could give

and somewhere in this soul of mine

is a gift you gave me, the will to live


and if we look at each other

something shows in the nervous smiles

the looks and the grins

strong, though separated by miles


I now get to look at that face

bearing the shine you say I gave

oh, how I reflect back the blush and humility

created by you, even as you called me brave


These are signs and evidence

of chemistry and attraction so strong

and though it took me so long to say it

our hands will touch before long…..
