Look at her there
Smiling her secret smile
But who is she smiling for?
And would she smile for me?

Listen to her there
Talking up a storm
Her words like music fill the air
Fill a need

But how to cross to her?
Bridge that gap?
I have the will, sure,
But the courage... it is lacking.

Written April 4, 1998.

A common theme in my life. :P
