An Old Fashion Romance

With a daunting smile I waved at you that night,
Somehow the way you looked at me didn’t feel so right.
Puzzled and embarrassed I lowered my head in total shame,
And when I recently saw you again I didn’t feel the same.

My love for you since then has only increased dramatically,
Wish I could hold you in my arms and kiss you so romantically.
You always seem to turn away when I happen to pass by,
Someday I will have the nerve to ask you the reason why.

I’ve heard the rumors from your friends that you don’t care,
But the way I tenderly feel for you will only force me to dare.
A fool I’ve made of myself for letting the others make a pass,
And I hope that when it’s my turn you won’t feel harassed.

Many times I’ve left an impression that I’m a total fool,
Because my old fashion way of courting you seems very uncool.
This heart of mine melts for you every time I smell your perfume,
And as I closed my eyes and inhale deeply you surely wrongly assume.

My dreams of you I hope privately to share with you someday,
Perhaps after a friendly touch of hands as we walk by the bay.
I know that flowers and candies are only a start to gain your trust,
So let me know if something more advanced for your heart is a must.

Allow me to talk to you as you accept an invitation to take you to lunch,
Than after I return you home you’ll let me know your feelings with a hunch.
Please let your emotions pace themselves so that I will have a chance,
Of becoming someone special so that this story ends in our true romance.
