How soon is too soon


how soon is too soon

i read you and liked what i read

heard you and enjoyed what i heard

endless words and thoughts so caring

my mind wondered what this could be



words of charm words so loving

acts of care to share your wares

a start of a beautiful thing having not seen

a friendship so true, so pure indeed



is it love so i say i love you?

too soon too fast to speak out?

holding back for outcome unknown?

fear of what next what lies beyond?



so far yet so close you are

ages apart yet hearts in one

language oh strange yet love unbound

how soon is too soon to say



so modest you are to say what is real

this song is for us to dance our style

if life unites our longing souls

i will go first to say it anyway



how soon is too soon to love

a day, a week, a month, a year

if you rejoice not in what you hear

then i rest my case in the hands of fate.
