I See You

I see you
Do you see me peeking at you
From behind the rose bush?
Look at your lovely hair - a tousled mess
Those eyes, gleaming in the afternoon sunlight

I pull on your apron strings
Perchance a small smile
Oh no! Not a frown from you

I see you
Did you know that I was watching you
When you were busy making chocolate cake?
Just look at your sweet face
Flour on your nose and cheek

I squeeze your arm tightly
Mayhaps I get the spoon
Thank you for keeping me close

I see you
You don't know that I am looking at you
Wrapped up in your blanket
So cozy and warm - a quiet nod
A peaceful time for you

Can hardly wait for you to waken
I'll find a hiding place
So I can watch again

    The poem uses unusual and imaginative subject matter to make a statement and is clever in its use. This is excellent in form, delivery and content. Emile.

    This is so cute.... And a little creepy in a loving way, i hope... Careful restraining orders can have a strange effect on love lol.... Jk. This one made me laugh for my own reasons, i love this.

    The personification of love -- watching you with fondness and care . . . you don't see her but you feel it . . . the love in the wind, the sun, in flour . . . brushing against you. You know it's there . . . love covers me. Outstanding poem -- my take on it!! Much love and light dear Neva. 7
