Return Romance

When she smiles that smile she smiles

The one that stirs and beguiles

Under the skin, inside the mind

It ties my eyes to her; they bind.


She knows not and cares much less

So I stay and not confess

How I feel or think or know:

I stand back and watch her go.


A shame we live in these days

Where I must watch what I say

For what was once called romance

Is consigned to fate, mere chance.


These words you won’t see or read

Or know they speak of my need

To have you look in my way

And return romance today.
