I’m Falling for You

I remember that night, the night we walked through the park, looking at Christmas trees, holding hands and freezing. It was so cold, but I was the happiest I’d ever been. We walked by families, by other couples, by kids and random people. All the while, I was thinking, Oh my goodness, he is Amazing! Please God, Please let this one work out. Please.

We Stopped at an outdoor ice ring, filled with little kids and families. Parents waiting to watch the kids take their turn on the ice. We stood there, watching. All the while, I’m thinking to myself, I don’t know what to say, what to do, this man, he is so different than what I know. But different in a good way, a very refreshing way. He’s what I’ve always wanted, but until now, never found.
‘Something will go wrong’, I thought to myself.

He could do so much better than me. Surely, he doesn’t find me near as enchanting as I find him. You asked me, “What are you thinking?” “Nothing”, but, thinking to myself, I couldn’t tell him that, it would scare him off. I think he’s perfect, he would think I’m crazy.

I really thought I would scare you off, I just couldn’t risk that. We stood close, touching chests as we snuggled close. More accurately, I snuggled up close to you and put my arms around you, between your coat and your clothes. The words you said to me, made my heart skip a beat and my voice, completely speechless. You told me that you are falling for me. I already knew that I too, was falling for you, from the very first moment, But to hear you say the words, was amazingly wonderful.
