Falling for You

Although I remember it well, many years ago,
This feeling comes differently to me now.
Unfamiliar, but still as strong.
All words failed as I looked into your light.

So long, those cold years slowly passed,
So long the chronic days of waiting;
An Odyssey alone in a waste of shame.
But you are here with me tonight,
And I am falling, once again.

Waiting today is the hardest part,
Hoping your heart can beat as mine,
Or else to find that I am fooled once more
By the smallest moments I must have dreamed--
Your elegant smile and soft, pure voice
Ever sweetened as I stood mute.

But the stirring of my heart is ever true,
And never with dreams of love imbued.
Once again my heart beats stronger--
Stronger now for you.
