Dumbstruck Redo

If I could go back to when I first met her,
I wouldn’t stamp and stammer sifting through my thoughts
I wouldn’t discuss the weather like my mind couldn’t fathom something other
I wouldn’t stare that way with nothing else while my heart and blood fought

Were I to meet her, it would go much better
My smile would be sincere and smoother
My mind would enter gear without a chatter
My modesty wouldn’t fail me in my ecstasy either

Then prepared with proper warning, all my faculties would fail me not
For I would slip the chains of fear never to be caught
For I would speak with elegance and wise forethought
For my heart would be prepared and ready for this moon-shot

Oh, to return and do it over, that time when I met her
Oh to get a second chance to set that first impression slot
On that moment my mind took flight and left me blubbering there
On that day my eyes first found you in that precious spot

Then you might have really looked at me beyond the frozen stare
Beyond the quadriplegic frightened animal so scared
Beyond the mindless dribble, and small talk impaired
Beyond all that I’m here, me the man dumb struck though I bee.
