A tiny voice in my head:
“Nice to meet you! How do you do?”
How nice it would be to hear that from you.
Await I did – I watched – patient in my place,
Knowing a lifetime chance might never present itself again.
A single phrase to a stranger’s ear could make it real.
“Seize the day” and seize it your way.
I listened to this wise say play over in my head.
I stood there and closed my eyes,
Bold, and afraid of your next move.
Soon there you were, holding my hand.
Then, I did not fear open them again.
I took my chance and got my dance.
My dream came true with a twist,
It was not you, it was me asking.
