Sitting in a far off corner,
I was lost for all who could see!
Yet in the corner of my eye,
From the distance I felt you notice me!!
I turn around to check,
If it was indeed the case!
But you stole your eyes away,
Away you turned your face!!
So I walk in your direction
And in work you seem engrossed!
Do I say something or just walk by?
My heart – back & forth it tossed!!
And I walk past, but only just,
Only to beat a hasty retreat!
And to catch you stealing a look again,
Ah! My joy felt complete!!
So I muster enough strength,
To come and stand by you!
Deep inside my heart had just,
Skipped a beat or two!!
And when you looked up,
With that pretty smile!
I was so tongue tied,
Just stood staring for a while!!
For a while time seemed frozen
And the world seemed to melt away!
Just stare I could at the lovely you,
Still not sure what I wanted to say!!
Finally when I spoke,
Indecipherably I mumbled!
My mind was still lost,
And my sentences were jumbled!!
As I walked back
And reflected on our lil rendezvous!
Though I didn’t quite say it,
I’m sure you heard me say “I love you”!!
