Hesitant

Written by: petra mallett

Hesitant feet on uncertain ground.
A hesitant heart making no sound.
Daring to beat too hard and too fast.
Daring to dream and pray love will last.

Butterfly tingles, senses reel:
Dare I tell him how I feel?

Eyes veiled with longing;
An empty hand grasps ~
For a chance at tomorrow
And his love to last.
