A Short Time

Already the need is too strong
With so short a time
Me trying to play it cool
My heart beating furiously
My breath suspended
Waiting for you to say yes
You not even knowing
I am in your hands
That with one word or better
The gaze of your brown eyes
I'd fall to my knees before you

Trying to let you know
With simple words
That masks a need stronger
Than my resolve to play it cool
Read between the lines
For the meaning goes far deeper
Beyond these lovely words
Where there is only breath and heart
Desire and strength
Our time may be short
But I will meet that gaze
