A young lass has caught my eye
Her beauty and charm puts me at ease
Dreams of passion are a lie
For I have forgotten how to please

I know little about her
Even less about what she wants
To her I am just a blur
My brain thinks as my heart taunts

I try to speak but only mumble
Unsure of what or how to convey
As I do my best not to stumble
Or regret words I have yet to say

If interest is only one sided
How do you keep it from becoming strange
With this in mind i remain undecided
In constant thoughts which rearrange

Am I a man? Or just a coward
Been on the defensive for so many years
I only carry a shield and no sword
To go into the battle of Love, or tears

So I shall continue to say nothing
For its all I know how to do
Go through the days hoping for something
That fate will give her a clue
