That Familiar Feeling Again - Poem by Jaymie Lanera

You told me that you love my eyes.
You said they're beautiful and your smile grew.
Well, you can look at them any time,
because they sure love lookin at you.

I have a feeling that something's brewing.
It's very familiar, I've felt it before.
Usually I screw it up, I talk while chewing,
live a little wildly and send 'em runnin for the door.

But, you told me that you love my eyes.
You said they're beautiful and your smile grew.
Well, you can look at them any time,
because they sure love lookin at you.

The first time we met, despite the chaos, we had a ball.
The second time we salsad, you kissed me and we had a great night.
The time between us hasn't been much at all,
but I still feel this something is starting out right.

Because, you told me that you love my eyes.
You said they're beautiful and your smile grew.
Well, you can look at them any time,
because they sure love lookin at you.

This kind of thing is really not my forté.
In fact, every attempt I've ever made, I've turned into a mess
by giving into temptation and with all the lies I'd say,
and it was always too late by the time I'd try and confess.

With you I see a lot of potential and opportunity
to be a woman who's good for you, which'd be good for me.
As my feelings arise, I will be loyal to them completely.
I'll do what I can and be all that I am and hopefully that can make you happy.
