And we are hopeless to surrender
Hand our hearts over the counter
Eyes veer to spot a suspender
Secretly-wanting an encounter.
Leaving us desperate to leap overboard
It happens with a nod and a wink
All familiar danger signs ignored
Hoping-all-the-stars fall into-sync.
So take the time to dry your eyes
And light a smile behind that cloud
Without a gamble, there's no prize
Know-every touch kiss can be profound.
When we take the time to love ourselves
It's the static calm after the storm,
The break from the norm we shelves
To beam ear to ear transform.
