Telling you in person

I will always remember

the look on your face

when I tell you you’re beautiful.

Eyebrows raise

Eyes widen

(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

so surprised.

I am just happy that I

have the privilege

of telling you in person.
