Falling off the Balance Beam
I was walking of the balance beam
The day that I was charmed.
The beam then shook, that's all it took.
I fell into your arms.
You looked at me, I looked at you.
We blushed and looked away.
You helped me up, I muttered 'thanks'.
You went about your day.
But thoughts of you were everywhere,
Your eyes, you voice, your smile.
I wanted you to visit me
And stay a little while.
The days went by, some seasons changed.
A couple months had passed.
I wondered if you loved me too,
But found I couldn't ask.
The years grew old, and so did we,
And then you moved away.
While suffering in silence,
I thought back to that day.
And climbed back on the balance beam,
Not thinking straight at all.
It shook once more, I nearly swore
And I started to fall,
When two arms caught me once again.
Could it be really true?
But when I stood and turned around,
The person wasn't you.
