Catching his glaze from across the room
Waiting in anticipation
His eyes slowly raising to mine
He would call me "fun"
gifting me compliments
Giggling at his jokes
one of the qualities I fell for
intelligence I never saw before
Talking was as easy, thoughtless as breathing
Laughing was much easier
We would talk for a long time
even longer if we could.
Walking toward the door to leave
Grabbing my hand, your warm hand held on.
That was the moment I knew I fell
Dancing in a field, the yellow moon shone upon us.
You twirled me around,
only the faint sound of music, the laughs, humming a tune we didn't know made up for the silence
Embracing me, I thought you wouldn't let go.
Nervous and cold
You asked if I could marry you.
Scared of love, I said "no"
My heart was saying "yes"
Seeing you again
too nervous you would be charming enough
my heart would fly away with you.
I will truly honestly love, respect him
for the rest of my life.
