She glided across the room
As if the wind itself propelled her,
A smile lit up the room
And his darkness went away
Those delicate hands moved through air
Spinning a tale of happiness
And he continued to watch her
Yet, she never noticed him
Indecision clouded his better judgment
Memories flooded through emptiness,
He remembered the sound of her laugh
And the way she played with her hair
While smiling at him
And touching him with soft, brown eyes
That seemed to caress him,
And the world slipped away
Her nearness now made him sweat
And he choked upon his heart
Did she forget him since she left?
Did she miss him at all?
All of his life, chasing a dream
She vanished, and made him awaken
Now, as he walked out the door
Their eyes met in a frozen heat
A pause in the fabric of time,
And that once familiar smile

JML,
this is excellent... i love the imagery and detail..and well expressed emotions, nice work!! take care, janet marie

 I love you
Is all that you can't say-
Years gone by and still...
Words don't come easily
Like I love you, I love you...
But you can say baby...
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you'd be mine...
