My hope burns dimly; like an ember of dying flame;

that I might win your love; if only you say my name.

I watch you from afar; my heart aches in my chest;

I pray you notice; my gaze is different from the rest.

~~~~

The longing in my eyes; must voice for me my care;

I cannot say aloud, “I love thee” I say it with a stare.

A subtle smile I offer, as you pass by my garden gate;

you smiled briefly back; I’m left to wonder at my fate.

~~~~

Was your smile simply done of politeness and its sake;

dare I hope was meant to be a message for me to take?

Speak to me; give me reason to believe that I am right;

or else find new path to take on your walk each night.

~~~~

When morrow evening came; I stood longingly by my gate;

he stopped this time, spoke my name; and sealed our fate.
