The First Day

It was one of those days I was having my downs.
Just sitting by myself in a glooming mood.
Then someone passed by.
With intent in my eyes I looked.

What I saw brightened my day.
I saw beauty,I saw you.
Then I said Hello and you said Hi.
It was with a cavity of gap-toothed dentition,
wearing a sparkling smile that was alluring,
and I fell in love.

When we talked,your voice was like 
the clapping sound of a  happy welcome,
and I fell in love again.
And I have been in love with you since then.
