A Duet

A poem inspired by today’s output for The New Story

A duet is what I want to sing with you

A song of love and longing, sweet and true

I’ve been dreaming of this moment for so long

But I was afraid to tell you how I feel

You’re the girl I’ve had a crush on since tenth grade

But you never knew the secret that I kept

You used to date a guy who made me feel small

But he’s gone now, and I have a chance to shine

You smile at me and say you’ll sing with me

You make my heart skip a beat and fill with joy

You hug me and say you’re glad to be my friend

But I hope that maybe someday you’ll be more

We’ll sing “Somewhere” from West Side Story

A song of hope and promise, bright and clear

We’ll sing it with our hearts and souls and voices

And maybe we’ll find our somewhere here
