She's loved him from afar all her days,
He's loved her the same,
And while they grow ever closer,
They cannot help but feel yearning pain.
They wonder if the other
Will ever get close enough
To ever start a fire
That will forever burn as such.
She wants him
To look her in the eye
And tell her what those looks meant
On the fourth of July.
He wants her
To tell him what she meant
When she texted him
About that brand-new hat on his head.
They long to tell the other
What beauty lies in their eyes,
But cannot manage it quite yet,
Not when they fear being denied.
