Love's first sight

Recall when we met, I looked in your eyes
 I felt my heart jump as if the world stopped
 Then started back up, it was a surprise
 I would guess that my jaw probably dropped

 It's a new world now, my lonely days gone
 The future now holds me embracing you
 I feel like an ugly duckling turned swan
 Finally believing in love that's true

 Was there communication in our gaze
 Was subconscious speaking to the other
 If so it will be heartfelt all our days
 It is not something told to another

 Just a feeling of warmth and connection
 In a love sweeter then a confection
