A Tremor In My Heart
I was talking with some friends,
when you appeared out of the blue.
My voice failed in mid-sentence,
at the first sight of you.
When you turned and looked at me,
a tremor in my heart took place.
My heart raced and began thumping.
I saw my dreams in your face.
Your next glance brought with it a smile,
which immediately captured me.
My friends saw the effect you were having,
but you were all I could see.
I apologised for stopping in mid-sentence,
but I had become completely mesmerised.
My friends laughed, jeered and taunted me,
Nor Nor walked the streets early in the day
looking for someone to talk with or play.
Down Taylor Street and around the block
calling at friend's houses, and giving them a knock.
At Billy Heaths, he said, 'Are you coming out to play? '
'No, Nor Nor, ' said he, 'it's much too cold today.'
With immense disappointment in his eyes,
gone was his chance of playing in the warmth inside.
