Hopeful

His feet moved
Tentative steps
Unsure her response
A slow dance meters apart
He hoped
But dared not leap
For fear of scaring her
One-sided waltz
He offered the music
He hoped
Continued to move his feet
Slowly
Persistent
But careful
Progress
Her smile the brass ring
He had the greatest gift
A positive reply
He was hopeful
