Debut album "Four Once....." out July 1st!

At FIRST SIGHT

There you are.....leap, my heart.....before one word.....
Meet, our eyes.....lock, our eyes.....
Don’t get me wrong - I have never believed in “love at first sight” -
I am convinced one can not grasp of such in one night -
That being said, I am suddenly open to certain persuasion -
You feel it, too, so would words only mar this occasion?
Whirlwind of lilting and quickening pace of our hearts -
Only one chance to get off to an optimum start -
Fearing misspeaking, not wanting this moment defiled,
Nervousness gives way to nature, and then we both smile -
At first sight, am I remiss,
Pondering holding your hand in the moonlight,
Imagining our first kiss?
There you are.....leap, my heart.....before one word.....
We both smile.....unforced smiles.....
Look at me - caught “in the headlights,” and searching for words -
How does this happen? Logicians would deem this absurd!
Dumbstruck, my mind and my body seem haltingly weak -
This is attraction at its worldly, uttermost peak -
Summoning both strength and wits, not averting my gaze -
Duly encouraged, for neither do you look away -
Striking, your beauty, but you convey not a denial -
Rather, warm welcome by means of your unrivaled smile -
At first sight, am I remiss,
Pondering holding your hand in the moonlight,
Imagining our first kiss?
Here we are.....open hearts.....in what might.....
Yes, be love.....at first sight.....
Could it be.....it begins.....at first sight?
