(Written when I first met my husband-to-be)
A spark is struck across the miles
A heart beats faster spurred on by artful prose,
Imagination takes wing across the sea
Both curious and knowing, the juices flow...
I see you before me, a bold man and free
with a powerful stance and an unrelenting gaze
I recognize you for who you are
My heart skips a beat and I'm left in a daze.
You turn and walk away, I follow unbidden
drawn to you without reason nor rhyme
Knowing only that I must know more about you.
To that end I'll defy distance and time.
