Poem: Butterfly Feeling

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Butterfly Feeling"

She remembers the moment he first spoke to her
with his boyish grin and twinkling eyes,
full of excitement like a high school boy
wanting his first kiss.

Glancing at her with his sexy, alluring eyes
anxiously listening to each word,
spewing sincere compliments her way.

Each time he wrapped his arms around her,
she felt butterflies
like nervous jitters
pounding rapidly in her chest.

As the days have turned into years
she smiles with happiness,
each moment he is beside her
excitement is still building,
sensing that fluttery feeling
watching his boyish grin
smiling back at her.

"You're Still The One" by Shania Twain
