I’m ready to fall in love;
head over heals
crazy in love with you.
I’m teetering right on the edge of the precipice
but I’m afraid to make the leap.
I’m waiting impatiently for you to catch up.
It’s a long way down if my timing is wrong
and you’re not there to catch me.
I’ve traveled there alone once before.
It’s a painful landing
and a long, treacherous climb back
out of the abyss when no one’s there to greet you.
But I’m ready.
The sound of your voice,
the touch of your hand,
the smile on your face
have me bursting my seams with joy.
I want to stop holding back and leap
free falling into your arms.
Let’s dive in over our heads together.
