When two hearts unexpectedly meet,
their wandering souls clumsily dance.
Like amateur puppets on invisible strings,
they sway to a tune that is unfamiliar.
Both struggle to catch the infectious rhythm,
but each hear the beat of a different drum.
Clumsier than most but better than some.
Will they ever come together as one?
One heart stops beating in anticipation,
while the other speeds up in pure elation.
The rhythm soon changes, out of the blue,
there’s only one thing left to do.
Both hearts race to master the dance,
to give their ‘meeting’ a fighting chance!
