Caught Off Guard

My day was perfectly planned

With meetings all over the place

No room to breathe or make mistakes

I was busy keeping busy;

Then you walked in …

I couldn't find the words,

Time froze to match my heart,

I didn't know where to start;

You stood there, confused, I excused,

Pulled it together, returned bemused.

I'm logical - where are my thoughts?

I'm organised - no connection…

Business! Business! Not emotion!

Too late; you held my attention.

Your eyes smiled - what was the question?

Your voice - don't ever stop talking.

Your honesty - perfumed air.

Your dinner plans? - Wish I was there.

You're doing nothing? - My pleasure!

Where's my mind? Pull it together!

The hour's gone? No, surely no.

It's cold out there, best not to go,

There's so much I still have to say;

Please don't leave me, don't go away.

A last question: Can I keep you…

Please stay

Go safe...
