lapel

it’s not that i believe
that you are the name you bear
on your lapel,
of course not;
but that name is enough,
for now,
to remind me of your eyes,
eyes that smile with such a radiance,
i am stunned to see them;
and to remind me of your smile,
a smile that can conquer the world
should you desire it…

it is enough
that i can go home
looking at the moon, and stars,
and see this name
spelled across the evening sky;
it is, perhaps, too much
to wish upon falling stars
that i could get to know the soul
behind this name, this smile, this lapel…

but dreams are free,
and the evening breeze,
it sings your smile to me!
so i will wish,
and i will hope…
and we shall see.
