I TOOK A CHANCE

I took a chance; Told you how I feel
Showed my hand; My heart revealed

This wasn't the plan; Meant to dance slow
But holding you there; Girl, I had to know

I took a chance; Just let my secrets fly
Your face says it all; We're dancing goodbye

This wasn't the plan; When I said, I love you
Your heart would melt; You'd say, I love you too

I took a chance; Just let my secrets fly
Your face says it all; We're dancing goodbye

You're in my arms; I have no regrets 
We have this song; And it's not over yet

So I close my eyes; Dream sweet romance
When time stands still; Glad I took a chance

~Lyric Man

Note: I wanted to write a little song about a guy who took a chance, made himself vulnerable, telling a girl how he feels about her... and without a word being spoken he knows they are dancing goodbye. And yet, he can live in the now and just for the moment.. focus on the girl in his arms!

Lyric Man, Thank you for capturing risk so well. :) It echoes Tennyson. Sadly, wallflowers never take the chance to become something else.

I like the way you wrote this poem. It is honest, true and clear. Reminds us all that we won't get anywhere unless we take a chance.

Enjoying the moment instead of focusing on the fact that it will end. I love it!!! It's wonderful that the heartache didn't ruin the moment.

Taking a chance always come with risk. I'm reminded of the saying, tis better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all. A very well written piece in my humble opinion.
