Like a feather dancing in the wind,

I can’t get my mind to settle on one thought,

Like the waves rolling on the ocean,

I think of you and I wonder if you’re thinking of me too,

Like the flutter of a hummingbird’s wings,

My heart picks up pace at the thought of you,

Like a sudden memory,

You rush my senses,

Like a dandelion fluttering in the breeze,

I hang tight and grip for the waves of emotions,

Like a skirt caught in a sudden updraft,

I try to suppress how I’m feeling,

Like a leaf falling from a nearby tree,

I can’t deny where I am headed,

Like a cooped up animal,

I lay in bed restless over thoughts of you…
