It feels like you are everywhere
Whenever I turn a corner,
I catch a glimpse of your smiling face
Our gazes cross paths and linger
Just a few seconds longer than they should
A few words exchanged shyly,
I am trying hard not to show it
But you intimidate me.
I wish I could get to know you better.
The thing is I feel both at ease
And paralyzed around you.
You impress me somehow –
Your kindness and your smile,
A strong yet gentle presence.
I realize I am yearning for more of you.
Purposely without an aim,
I get up and wander about –
Half hoping, half expecting to see you.
A few steps onwards,
I look up and there you are,
Heading up or down.
You address me and I can sense
I am blushing inside – I wonder
If my cheeks are letting you know…
How you make me feel – – You smile.
I melt and my lips mirror yours.
I am hoping those lingering gazes
You are offering are only mine for the taking.
Soon I’ll muster some courage and maybe –
Well that we’ll see…
