Five Steps Too Late

I count one, two, three
And she’s already five steps
Ahead of me
I rate her humor a five
From one to five
Her sincerity a five
Her looks a ten!
Yet I have walked
Just one step
Just one bit closer
To being with her
Not five, not four
Not three, not two
Just one step closer
To being with the one
That makes me drunk
With thoughts
Of a happy life
Just one step
Ready for the second one
A kiss
Looking forward
To the third
A steady relationship
A fourth
A fifth
One, two, three
Four, and three
And four again
But she’s already
Five steps ahead of me
The one I want to love
And to love me back
Is so far ahead
I’m five steps too late
For she’s already engaged.
