Words, phrases and sentences of greeting,
'How are you?' and 'Having a good day?',
'Wonderful to see you',
And 'Oh. by the way'...
Two of us among our friends,
Enjoying each others company,
Never knowing the bond being created,
Aloof to the thoughts of many...
Time passes on as days go by,
Oblivious and anxious at the same time,
Feelings whirling and tumbling,
Watching my heart soar so high...
You came upon my life,
Unsuspecting, open and true,
Smiles brightened as names appeared,
Drawing colors of a perfect hue...
Love rises from deep within,
Showering us with emotions,
Shivers, breathlessness, warmth and kindness,
Hearts quickening in rapid motion...
A hug, a smile, a touch, a kiss,
Minds and bodies united in sync,
Blessed with this newfound love,
Wonders what to think...
A joy has immersed my soul,
Shedding new light,
A voice, a mind, a soul, a hand,
Creating happiness and delight...
