Secret Admirer

Is it your smile
that dazzles me
The softness of your voice
that comforts me
The light in your eyes
scrying my future joys
Am I selfish
for thinking you are the answer
Presumptuous
for dreaming you can want me too

I’d like to tell you-
I’m under your spell
I’d like to speak my mind
with the melody from my heart
I’d like to say, I love you
But I cannot
Lest I spook and alarm
For already,
You are too precious to lose
And a little bit of you
Is better than none at all

Paramour of dreams
Peculiar with perfection
My heart surrenders
betrothed and bound to love you
Meant to be, Never to be

The love we give does not vanish. It comes back in different forms

Stay safe, stay loving.

      Haha, I don’t think I am. Might have been in the past but unintentionally. I’m quite attuned to others’ feelings and emotions.

      I’m glad you liked that tanka Gabriella. It was one of the smoothest I’ve ever written. The words and emotions just fit into the syllabic form so naturally
