ALL I CAN DO

I’ll meet you for coffee
I’ll be there at four
I hope we can talk
I’ll be by the door.

I’ll try to convince you
To give me a chance
To open your heart
Entertain this romance.

Life is so short
You’ve been on your own
Why would you want to
Be all alone?

Stressed out all day
All by yourself
Wouldn’t it be better
If you had some help?

I reach for your hand
But, you pull away
Is it just me
Or are you afraid?

No pressure, no insistence
No worries, no threats
Just hoping you’ll consider
And, you won’t regret.

Letting me go
Without even trying
Could be a mistake
You might end up crying.

All that I want
All I can do
Is tell you the truth
I’ve fallen for you.
