It was something quite unexpected,
your feelings, I surely could not tell,
emotions you had hidden so well.
Oh, those feelings of being rejected,
my Love, you must have suspected
all of the words I could not say.
You kissed me and took my breath away.
Forever we would be connected.
A caress from the lips, I so desire.
Be still, the thunder of my heart.
Bathed I am in a liquid fire,
holding on as we come apart.
Feelings, yes, so unexpected.
