Timdly, I smile at him...

This is a duet.

I was in love.

Sorry, it lacks punctuation at ends of lines, but I felt that it had more flow without it.

Timidly, I smile at him
Sweetly, I look at him
I dream of him, like a lone ladybug
But, oh so silently, I love him.

Who is she, to gaze at me so?
Whose laughter charms my soul so?
It seems unfair that only one glimmer of her fair blue eyes
To move my heart lovingly so

I long for him to take my hand in his
Perhaps down a solitary moonlit trail
Beside us shimmering fish decorate the waters
Of a gentle river composing a silent music

Her perfect complexions, slender form
Should they rest against mine
So the breeze spreads her free, golden hair
Into a timeless day where birds chirp a cherished chorus

If only I could reach out to his heart
And move it like he did mine
If only I could hold her close to me
So she hears my passion beating for her
And if he whispered into my ear
How much I longed for her
So we would love, so happily
In a loving duet, of a never-ending song

Ohh now you have me thinking of her. Lovesick mood... I suppose. I guess it gives me incentive to invite her to a park tomorrow. Good job on the poem, and i really love how you put both male and female thoughts into it.
