If I had the courage…

autumn

I wore my heart on my sleeves.
With stars in my eyes, I loved.
To speak my soul to you,
If I had the courage…

In a daze, the world sparkled.
Doodling even drooling.
Love sick, yearning, wanting,
If I had the courage…

Young love, fragile.
Is that love reflected?
Words I want to say.
If I had the courage…

Afraid. Is this infatuation?
Reaching out, a whisper.
Love dejected, shut away.
If I had the courage…

Rewind. A chance lost.
To be that young, in love.
A heart beating with passion.
I’ll shout with courage, I will…
