You!

You! With that something stealing my feelings away
You! With that something I can not define
You! With that something that makes my heart tremble
everytime I see you, like an earthquake inside my body

Is it your smile?
That smile that reminds me of my baby brother's smile
When he first stood up on his feets and smiled at me
The smile that brought me so much joy and pleasure
The amount of pleasure that could make a dying man happy
Is it those eyes?
Eyes that reminds me of when I first saw the ocean
Deep and endless, yet magnificant in many ways
The eyes that are as if from a divine being brought to earth
That makes me feel like I'm in the presence of an angel

You! That makes me feel like something I can not explain
You! That makes me feel like I'm high on drugs
You! That makes me suffer when I see you not with me
Filling my every thought with hopes of seeing you again
Making my breath heavier every second that passes by

What is it?
That makes my heart ache when we're apart?
Is it your stunning beauty or your mesmorizing attitude?
Why is it?
That I feel so happy just being close to you?
That my heart starts dancing with no music when I see you?

You! That have become my favorite drug
Do you feel the same way in my presence?
