Will you stay awhile and listen to these words
That tumble haltingly from trembling lips?
Will you stay and hear what I have to say?
That in this vast ocean of flowing life
you’re the heart that this one seeks,
though trepidation always forms when eyes
touches yours even in a glance
a split second of happiness before darkness descends
that sudden warmth that tingles from fingertips
as they launch into writing a script meant
from the heart of hearts that yearns
that even for a moment you’ll stop and listen
to the song that someone is singing for you
and understand that you’re not the only one
who is alone in this crowded world

Should I write you a love letter
letting the sweetest words appear
on these blank pieces of paper
telling you what I’d do if you’re near?
Should I woo you with kisses
press them tenderly upon your lips,
and with the softest of touch shall caress
your cheeks with my fingertips?
Should I read you a poem tonight
the one that I’ve kept hidden all this time
read it with such passionate delight
not listening to it would be a crime?
Should I dance for you under the starlit skies
swaying hips in rhythm with the flames
capturing your attention and your desires
bringing passion to our little games?
Should I make you mine this valentine
and offer my heart to you on bended knee,
whisper to you how I want you to be mine
and share the secret that love whispered to me?
