Before you grabbed my hand
I was more nervous
because I knew it was coming
I just didn’t know when
I played with the moment
imagining what would happen
wondering if it would have changed the way
they looked at us
Would you have of started kissing me?
I was not ready for that you know?
Would this “hand holding” lead to other things
like sex and falling in love
because I was not ready for that.
My heart was still young and naive
and only you and your hand
was the going to be the one
to make it ready
to take the risk
