Young Love

John D 

She is the sun
On a warm summer day
She brings all the wonder
With a whisper
My way
I feel my heart rising
With every word she does say
That smile will surely be
The very end of me
Some day....

I am falling
Far too fast and out of control
She's using her powers
to capture my soul
The smell of her hair
Dances through the warm air
And has me giddy like a child
So unfair!
My insides are aching
Her beauty, breathtaking
The green in her eyes
Leaves me weak to surmise
How can such an angel be real
Is it possible
She sees how I feel?
I cannot say
I'll look away
For a while
But then
There's that smile again
That has me in such eager array

The light is just right
The breeze plays with ease
The birds seem to spectate
From the wavering trees
A kiss would be bliss
But what if I miss
What if she isn't at all pleased

I guess..
I'll close my eyes
And just see…
