So Close

Finally
it seems we have arrived
at the same place

and all of a sudden
you are within sight
within reach

and I can almost see
that blue
is the color of your eyes

and you
can see the trepidation
coloring mine

and you could
take a step closer to me
if you wanted to

and I could
take a step closer to you
if I wanted to

and we would close the gap
if there was nothing
between us but air

but that air
is filled with obligations
and promises

and innocent hearts
we have no right
to break.
