I knew at once

you were the one

the nervous smile

fronting a quiet kindness


A coffee spot lingered

opposite your heart

endearing you to me

as you listened, waiting


hoping you see too

a sign for more

an opening to turn

the handshake to a kiss


The words flow

laying a path

set to smiles

leading to love
