Florida Sunset

It was a beautiful Florida sunset,
Like a million sunsets before,
I ordered a cafe con le-
che, and I walked along the shore.

Her eyes captured mine completely by surprise.
I fell into their stormy surf.
Then she noticed without chasti-
sing, and smiled, not hiding her mirth.

“I apologize for staring… you’re pretty,”
reaching deep for courage to speak.
“You’re fine; that’s probably the swee-
test compliment I’ve heard all week.”

Despite our awkward meeting there on the sand,
Somehow it just felt very right,
To walk hand in hand, and have cand-
le-lit dinner for two that night.

It was a beautiful Florida sunset,
Like no other sunset before.
