I was lost in thought again.
bitter winds nipped at my cheeks
As my feet shuffled from foot to foot.
Hoping fingers would find warmth in my pockets,
I ducked my chin into my scarf,
Draping dangerously loose around my neck
And waited tiredly for the agenda to start.
I shivered as flurries found their way
Down my back
Release its unwanted hello.
Catching your attention
Hands not my own
Pull at the collars of my coat.
Working the first two buttons open
I freeze in confusion
And watch practiced hands
Re-wrap my scarf
Tucking extra ends to protect my chest.
I looked up to see her eyes
Focused on her task
cheeks reddened by her closeness,
Im stiff waiting for the moment to pass.
I watched soft curls fall about her face
As she scolds me about properly
Wearing my scarf
While she buttons the last button.
Smiling straightening my collar
This blush as become a permanent stain on my cheeks.
I slightly nod my head at her wide smile
Im stuck watching her her attention slowly move away.
Feeling endearment’s warmth
With this careful display of love,
Through playful scolding
her worry of me brought,
I grab her hand in awe
Their soft like her, real like her,
Eyes honest like her
And I will always remember her for it
