A Single Glance

With a single glance I was captivated
Impossible to get her out of my mind
The essence of my being permeated

There was a right moment that I would find
I was not willing to leave love to chance
Impossible to get her out of my mind

Between each heart beat I learned how to dance
So glad I had the courage to talk to her
I was not willing to leave love to chance

As we spoke I felt my emotions stir
Knowing somehow that she felt it too
So glad I had the courage to talk to her

Some thought I was crazy but that wasn't true
We were destined for each other from the start
Knowing somehow that she felt it too

We have two bodies but share the same heart
With a single glance I was captivated
We were destined for each other from the start
The essence of my being permeated 

A single glance can change a life forever! I enjoyed your
contest. I barely made the deadline, number 50.

    Fond memories of high school come into play while enjoying this. I remember when I use to make attempts to talk to my wife. She was quiet, well dressed, and gorgeous. I didn't know she walked by me intentionally, everyday to ignore me. 26 years later, we both payed attention. LOVE IN WORDING, POWERFUL!

    Fate is a mysterious force Richard and nothing and no one can change it. I oppsessively believe in destiny and when I read your terzanelle it solidifies it. Well written as per usual.

    I like the rhythm and flow of this form, constant weaving of the lines over and under; a braid of words. As usual you breathed new life into the form and made it your own.
