I may look down at the ground when I see you coming,
because I don’t want you to see my face,
my blushing cheeks,
mouth that can’t stop smiling.
I may move aside when you walk right by me,
because I don’t want to bump into you,
and for you to have to apologize.
I may spend extra time getting ready before I know
I’ll see you you’ll see me.
I may wear my favorite perfume,
in case you’re in close proximity.
I may wear my hair differently,
or apply a touch more makeup than usual.
I may say yes
when if you asked me out to dinner,
or a movie, or just for a cup of coffee.
I may say yes if you noticed me,
if I was brave enough to look up at you.
