Place your hand on my back and feel the tenderness of my skin.
Pay attention to my eyes like you would the last bowling pin.
And spare me the hurt; caress me with care.
Put your lips to my lips and your hand through my hair.
I know it’s too early and I’m not thinking straight,
But would you so kindly ask me out on a date?
Would you take me to dinner? We could split up the check,
But don’t drop me off without sharing a peck.
A peck on the cheek; a thread to hold on to.
It’s hard to hold on since I don’t know much about you.
But I’m willing to wait just to know where we stand
But would you so kindly hold onto my hand?
You don’t have to forever, just hold me for now.
Let’s feel however much our hearts will allow.
