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
