I pray the courage to speak aloud
And wish my heart to be not proud

Daydreams intrude on my every thought
Anxiety builds, my mind is fraught

My heart speaks volumes, mouth is mute
Thoughts are rich, actions dilute

Admired from afar but never approached
Will my love for you ever be broached?

    Congratulations Russell for your win in the contest of Brian Strand "Two Thru Twelve". Love, Carol P. S. I was away and missed congrats on many of Brian's contests. I try but don't know if I will ever catch up.
