First Glance

Written by: Marianne Nolido

 There I was, feeling the breeze,
The sand on my feet, How I want time to freeze.
I try to reminisce my childhood,
teary eyed, in the shore where I stood.

Holding on to memories like this,
It's as bad as it gets, recalling people you dearly miss.
I was walking there on my own,
preserved in a bubble, while listening to some music on my phone.

Then I glance at a distant,
astonished by the guy for an instant.
How he was indeed amazing,
looking at the sunset, loving what he's doing.

Now I was struck by his first glance,
even though it was merely by chance.
But I won't forget his smile,
for I felt a little Happiness, even just for a while.
