Analysis of A Tale of Yearning Love



Be still my fluttering heart,
Will it be him that is my love,
From the first moment I saw him,
Through eyes alive with wonderment?

Handsome beyond my wildest dreams,
Like a Knight ready to do battle,
Like a King crowned for his glory,
He stands before me, like a God.

Will he notice me,
Just a heart beat away,
A smile could only say I love you,
Oh! handsome one glance In my direction?

The tale of old is, love at first sight,
This is my moment, this is my chance,
See me, see me now at this moment,
With my eyes so filled with love, be forever mine.
