I know you see me watching you,
my interest comes as no surprise.
You act as though you don’t notice,
but I can see your private eyes.

A smile turning up the corner,
you gently bite your lip to stop.
Your hand brushes hair from your face,
flattered, but pretending you’re not.

You lose me in the crowded room,
you hear, behind you, my whisper.
Turning as you breathlessly sigh,
your heart beating all atwitter.

My arm slides about your slim waist.
I pull you close, and you go still.
“I love you”, the first words I say.
“I love you, and I always will.”
