Always Know I’m Fascinated


Are you just that sweet and innocent,

or just an illusion?

There’s no doubt in my mind,

you’re my logical conclusion.


You are so care-free, easy going, easy to love,

my most exciting essential delight.

You’re always the dazzler,

and so unquestionably polite.


Conscientious and attentive,

are these traits really relevant?

Absolutely, just like your life,

so positively celebrant.


Intense, brilliant perceptive eyes,

that seek me out and greet my gaze.

Then a knowing smile,

as they light up and twinkle,

every time I turn a phrase.


Intrigued by tender possibilities,

encouraged by your sunny inclinations.

Infinitely enchanted by your compelling allure,

always know I’m fascinated

by our true love’s celebrations.
