I sing it out,

Laughing as I go,

My voice raised an octave.

Your eyes meet mine.

I can smell the rain

Of your gloomy day.

Your smile hides,

Your eyes dodge mine.

I laugh.

Sing it out again.

I take your hands,

And swing them as I dance.


Then I see the you I love.

Your smile comes out of hiding,

I watch it grow big and wide.

Your eyes shine

As you laugh at me.

You smile.

I wrap you up in a hug,

We rock side to side,

And almost fall… but don’t.

And then I let you go,

And watch you walk away,

Smile still in place.
