Third base

She snatches me from
the jaws of disaster
my heart beats a little bit faster,
my pulses race.

She catches my eye every time
I walk by,
how amazing is
‘Amazing Grace’

Another me in another time
would have taken the time to
run a mile from her smile
there’s only me
here and now
it feels right,

her night heals me and
if I am to be sealed
into my fate
seal me in now
why wait?
