Offering

I'm standing here
In the middle of a crowded intersection
Arms stretched wide
Offering myself to you

But you're standing on the sidewalk
Surrounded by safety
Afraid to take the risk
To leap into my arms

So the cars continue to rush by
And the rain begins to fall
No one notices my offering
Because it's only meant for you

So I stand with heart open
And you stand with blank eyes
Too high to understand
And waiting to forget

And I still stand with arms wide
Waiting for you to see me
To run towards my offering
To take a chance and accept my love

So there you are
Still standing on that sidewalk
Wondering how I feel
Trying to see if I'll give up and move on

And here I still stand soaked in rain
Feeling like a fool
But still arms stretched wide
Offering my heart to you
