I will always remember
the look on your face
when I tell you you’re beautiful.
(Could your eyes be any bluer?)
You look surprised
And I smile
Because I’ve been watching the shape of your nose
and the curve of your mouth
dusted with freckles
And while you’re saying, “Oh!” and “Thank you!”
I think, there’s no need to look
I am just happy that I
have the privilege
of telling you in person.
