I Almost Held Your Hand Today by Gary R. Ferris
I almost held your hand today,

But something made me stop;

I looked deep into your eyes,

And saw stars around the top.
I wanted so much to tell you,

But I couldn’t find the words to say;

And searching for the right things,

The words just went away.
I felt an easy feeling,

Way deep down in my soul;

For I felt you could love me,

The way we used to know.
It’s hard to hold back feelings,

That are bursting down inside;

But love just will not go away,

No matter how hard I tried.

I almost had my nerve up,

But feared you’d call me a name;

For I remember when you told me,

We would never be the same.
And I almost held your hand today,

Why did I have to stop?

I can still look into your eyes,

And see stars around the top.
