Hands not quite touching, they walked through the sand
His heart beating wildly, would she love him tonight?
The thought went unspoken, but the question was there
If he were a stranger, is there a chance that she might?
He wanted to tell her, what she wanted to hear
of eyes like stardust, and how beautiful her hair
Of dreams she inspired, and fantasies they'd share
If he were a stranger, only then would he dare
She wanted to hold him, and tease him with promise
of passions unleashed, in the game of romance
Her breath came quicker, and she wanted to tell him
If you were a stranger, I would have taken a chance
Instead she told him, how well she was feeling
He spoke of his job, and the things he wanted to do
Hands never touched, and dreams never mentioned
For he wasn't a stranger, and the thoughts taboo
For strangers are free, to say what they will
To enjoy special moments, without any danger
Of breaking the rules, that come between friends
What times they'd have had, - if he were a stranger.
