I see you pass by and often it’s not accidental,
I purposely wait until you come along and yes, it’s not coincidental.
But I’m not the only one crushing on you,
Others go out of their way for you too.
You’re well admired for your character and charm,
And that smile! Oh, makes me feel warm.
So as you go on with your routine,
I wait for you to swing by while I sip some caffeine.
I loved him from afar
Tracing his features, drawing it in the air.
I took note of those gorgeous eyes that at one moment can be so calm
And the next, might spell trouble.
His natural smile and contagious laugh that instantly makes everything fine.
His hair, rugged or kept, makes him no less handsome.
And then there’s his voice
Smooth, soothing, calm, gentle.
Oh that voice!
I love the way he talks too.
Intelligent, friendly, sometimes awkward
But always a gentleman when he speaks.
Never wanting to hurt or say something bad to others.
He is the complete package as others would often say
For me, he is a man straight out of a romantic novel I’ve read sometime before.
And though I can only love him from afar,
I know this feeling is anything but fiction.
The stars don’t fall far from the sky
The moon doesn’t eclipse the sun often
I drown on three feet of water
Knowing very well that he is
And will be
The love that I could never have
He’s not mine to call my own
To be with me and have long conversations with
He will always be a picture from a distance
Not mine to hold, just there to look at
It’s hard to keep emotions down but I have a good poker face
He will for always be my Mona Lisa from a far
You came into my life when I needed to lean on someone
Helped me in ways I never thought of
Truly I am grateful to have you
I am in love with the thought of you and I as friends
We need not be romantic
And I need not any other reason
It’s nothing but a crush
Just an admiration
But when proximity and intimacy get the best of you
You start to fall
And it’s not always a good thing
I avoided the conversation,
And tried not to give in
I kept holding back
And told them nothing
I kept mum
Silent as a whisper
But then you started to tease
And I can’t help but loosen my grip
Don’t tease me and make me fall for nothing
Because I’m ready to give you my all
It may just be me or a trick of the light
But there seems to be fondness,
His eyes full of delight
Whenever he looks my way
It may be nothing, I may just be imagining
Maybe I’m just blinded
by the fact that I like him
But then he’s never had that look on me before
He steals a glance, or so I think
I sense he’s looking my way
Or I could just be paranoid
A hint of jealousy, at least that’s what I see
When he sees me around this other guy
A friend of mine, a very good one
Seems like he’s cautious with him
This game we play can be tiresome at times
But silly me thinks there’s something sweet about it
We play this hide and seek, ’til we run out
of excuses to hide
I hope that day would come, sooner than later
