"You look nice today."
"You look nice today."
She said it so sweet
The smile that crept across her face
Everything about me melted away
Wanting to run into her arms
But her expression said to be careful
Instead I followed her gaze to the door
Outside, away from the crowd
We tiptoe out of the confusion
Away from all the eyes
Our hands touch
Our eyes meet
One soft kiss
"You look nice today."
Teary eyed I reply,
"Thank you."
