Too shy

by cricketjeff on February 3, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

Sitting alone on a bench in a park
Holding a box of chocolates for you
I wonder if you will walk by before dark
Will there be somebody walking with you?

I sit on this bench and wait without fail
Sometimes I see you, when you don’t see me
Shyness has built me a terrible jail
I wonder if I will find a way free

I walk through this park, he sits and admires
Tomorrow I’ll stop and ask him his name
I hope that I am the one he desires
Is he too shy to take part in the game?

Sat down beside him, he gave me a box
Fallen in love with the guy with the chocs
