It's Dazzling

The shimmer through your swirling hair, 

That playful glint within your stare

That wishful shine upon those lips,

Oh, it's dazzling! 

The thoughtful wrinkle upon your brow, 

That charge that makes your eyes say "Wow!"

The honesty in your welcome smile,

Oh, so dazzling!

Is this love that burns my soul? 

One look at you and I feel whole.

But I can't share this with you at all.

 

You speak to me as a dear friend, 

But never look beyond that end.

I long to claim oh so much more!

Lord, it's dazzling! 

In my dreams you've held me tight, 

Yet I'm not worthy of that right.

Your shining star so humbles me!

Oh, it's dazzling!

Is this love that burns my soul? 

One look at you and I feel whole.

Dare I risk sharing this with you at all?

 

I can not see how to overcome 

The blinding chasm that keeps me from

Forging that great bond with you!

Oh, it's dazzling!

How could I risk losing what you give, 

Dear friendship for as long as I live,

But to never hope to have it all?

Oh, that's dazzling!

Is this love that burns my soul? 

One look at you and I feel whole.

Can I spend one more day without your heart?
