The Choice Is Yours

See the moment

When she reaches out to you

Grab her hand

Pull her close


Take the chance

Make a stand

Show her the truth

In your words


For the moment

This is your chance

The key is ready

Waiting in her hands


She’s already fallen

She sees the hope

It lingers

After you speak


She sees your heart

It slowly shows

In the only way

Hers will know


See the fire

She’s built it

Just for you


For a time

It slowly burns


On low


The choice is yours

You can take her hand

Tell her how you feel


Just let the truth

Fan the flame

Magic growing


Or stand choosing

Letting the fire die

As you watch

Your dream

Walk away

  3. Well done. Really enjoy the images of opportunity and seizing the moment. I appreciate how you offer an image and resolve it a few stanzas later, like fire, then later fan the flame. Thanks, enjoyed 🙂
