I REMEMBER ---
Our stolen hugs and kisses between the elevator floors
How we'd brush against each other going through the doors
When our hands would touch when reaching for the coffee pot
When we'd take a rug and sneak off to a private picnic spot
We'd leave the office for lunch at noon and not get back 'til three
Our sidelong looks and grins when there was no one 'round to see
The private little jokes we shared like a pair of silly teens
Our peers would look askance at us, wondering what it means
All the things about our office romance that started with a look
All those years ago - a look was all it took.
Now thirty years have passed, though it seems like yesterday
But I remember everything, and that look still is there today.
