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

    Disarmingly charming write you have here, Neva. I like its simplicity and innocent approach to address the beloved in her routine and even in slumber. Seven! Smiles from the thousand isles. :D

    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

    Excellent, Neva! It reminds me of the Police song, Every Breath You Take...sweet and loving yet with a slight dark tinge of interpretation, anyway! Thanks for your visit...hugs, Rhonda

    Hey Neva there is a sense of innocence in this yet it is a very powerful write, I like the way you move from the present to the future and still retain a sense of mystery, very well done....David
