Surprised

It’s funny the things that keep you on your toes…

a slight but hidden caress, a tender look at an unexpected moment,

or that text that floats in and causes your heart to tremble strangely but happily.

They say you never know when it will happen, and perhaps that surprise is what

keeps your blood pumping and your spirits from sagging when all seems gray,

and perhaps expecting that surprise is what keeps you looking over your shoulder,

into your heart and forever peeking hopefully around the corner, hoping, praying that this

will be the day that it happens for you.

It’s funny the things that keep you on your toes…

So afraid to miss it that you reach for every single star and hope it doesn’t burn as badly

as the last one did, leaving a scar and scabs that remind you of that elusive surprise.

What keeps you on your toes, though, is funny…

A heated glance filled with promises that only you can imagine, a clasping of hands,

and a soft and tender smile that pulls at your insides with the promise of what could be.
