Taking A Trip

His eyes were so blue

And his smile so bright

He stood across the room

And I was unsure

If I should say hello

We were only acquaintances

But he always made me smile

Slowly I approached him

And said a quiet hello

He was instantly smiling

We talked for hours

And I felt my heart

Travel to cloud nine

Hours turned to days and weeks

And my heart fell deeper

Into the abyss of love

But his heart took a detour

And didn’t make it back around

I was drowning in desire

And he was saying goodbye

I was lost and broken

But fate wanted us

To still remain friends

Now how do I tell my heart

That the road to love

Is forever closed
