A Shy Girl
By Jon Westrick (February 12, 2005)

A shy girl passed my way
A shy girl with little to say
What does she think
As she passes along?
Does she feel out of place
Like she doesn't belong?
What does she think
As she looks away?
Nothing to talk about?
Nothing to say?
She can't look me
Square in the eye
Am I that hideous?
All I can do is sigh
Because a shy girl
Passed my way
What is she thinking?
Perhaps I'll know one day.
