A love in waiting

A tale that’s been told since the beginning of time
Of a man and a women and love and a rhyme
As sweet as love is it sometimes tastes bitter
When stealing ones heart always look through the glitter

For her heart sings for you but still dances with him
You showed up to late and it all feels so grim
Sinking in despair you look for a sign
Hoping that somehow she'll throw you a line

The world thinks you’re foolish for choosing to wait
While her eyes have you spellbound your blind to your fate
Your heart is a ship that’s now lost out at sea
And she is the lighthouse that will help set you free

Or is she a siren who watches you crash
You’re a moth to her flame as you burn into ash
One thing’s for certain when together you shine
She's the wind you’re the sky and stars all align
