not full to see

the face behind it

but the smile was there

it was pure joy looking at it

a heart beat stormed by

like a knock on the door

welcome was the answer

a mask was on you

and your name

though doubt if it is real

perhaps it is a nickname

be as it may it is gorgeous

whenever I think of that picture

nights have turned paradise

dreams sweet ones I say

if this is not love what might this be

when might we see each other
