That Glistening Stream

June 16, 2009
When she alone recognizes the truthful soul within a young man's heart
Watching carefully his decisions, wrapping them around her head, and taking them apart
She wants to lean in deeper, find out where this glistening stream leads
Is there a pool full of plentiful smiles, his sparkling eyes, and unkempt needs?

Ideas and fantasies spinning around a young girl's dreams
She wants him to take her hand as they dance along those streams
First she'll take a toe-dip, test the water, watch him swim
Curiosity will drown her after she falls in

Soon, though, she'll awake and have to wait again til night
When she can taste her girlish wishes of holding her sweet knight
But during the day she locks away these hopeless thoughts
If people knew her feelings, would she get through the humiliation? She thinks not

One day this young girl's hopes- one day this young girl's dreams
Will be shattered and ignored- no more dancing on those streams
When people knew her secret, it no longer was the same
In real life her feelings crumbled; She'll never dream the same again
