I Can't Take My Eyes Off Her

I watch her from across the room. She moves so gracefully without even 
trying to. Her long blond hair falls over her face, she sweeps it behind her 
ear and looks up at me. Im sure she knows Ive been looking at her. The way 
she is looking at me makes me lower my eyes and a slight blush comes to my 
cheeks. She turns her head and I look back up at her, her profile is 
amazing. The gentle slope of her nose, the tiny smile playing on her lips 
and the blue of her eyes holds me in a trance. I dont want to look away, so 
I dont. It seems like hours have passed as I sit here, people are talking 
all around me, but I cant hear them. Even as she looks back up at me I cant 
take my eyes off her. She sees my loving gaze and she smiles. She smiles at 
me. My heart races. I smile back and she looks down again, the smile still 
on her perfect lips. Ill never forget that moment of complete bliss. Her 
face will be in my memory forever.
