Her Hand In Mine
If I reached out and took your hand,
Would you take it back or squeeze?
Would you tell me where I could go,
Or move closer, as you please?
If the former,
Then please explain –
My heart is in your hand.
If the latter,
No need to talk –
Your wish is my command.
I want to make things right with you,
And drift into the night.
For both to share our love as one,
Until the morning light.
