Staring

I could not but watch

Your eyes

In the light that flickered

With laughter,

With concern,

With joy.

I could not but stare

At this person whom I adore

So.

I could only watch while you

Spoke to me,

And I will keep watching in my mind

Now

Hours and days

Weeks and months later

I will think back on this night

Whence I could only stare.
