I can’t help but watch
While you’re sitting there sipping your coffee
Innocently you brush your hair aside
And unravel the beauty that is your face
My eye catches yours
But I cannot hold your gaze
Because looking in your eyes
Makes me weak
You let off a wry smile, gentle, almost mischievous
As if you’re trying to provoke me
That smile of yours pushes me off the edge
And makes me want to kiss those lips
But I control myself; not here, not now.
You sense my dilemma. You lean forward
Pick up your cup, and take a sip;
Savoring the taste.
I now wish I were that cup of coffee
The one you were so gently holding
And kissing just a moment ago.
I’ve lost all track of time.
You’ve just made a memory
I can’t forget.
No matter what I try and do
My mind just keeps coming to you.
And you’ve made me realize
That it doesn’t take a grand gesture
But just that little thing you did
That made me fall in love with you.
