Elusive Elizabeth

 

Elizabeth, you elusive girl --
I hardly know you,
but I miss you already;
I miss you
(without really knowing you).

Your smile is in my thoughts,
your face and your eyes;
shining brightly,
sparkling like a gem.

Your being intrigues me,
allures me, entices me --
O, when will you see me
and end this sweet pain?

I apologize for laughing
on the phone the other day
I hope I didn't offend you
it wouldn't be my way.

You see my thought
was simply that
it was funny,
my dear Cheshire cat,
that I once again
had started
falling in love.

Elusive Elizabeth!

I can't stop thinking about you,
you're in my thoughts,
lingering...

LL, 1996
