i remember the first time
that i laid eyes on you
i thought you were so beautiful
you were talking to someone
i was walking by the door
i had to stop and stare
felt like the world stopped too
since then i have gotten to speak with you
numerable and precious times to me
your voice is so soothing, it calms me
i remember the time you were introduced to me
your face lit up with that wonderful smile you have
the smile i have seen many times and treasure
hopefully someday we can get past the formalities
for i like to get to know you and be your friend
