Today I met an angel
she glided towards me across the parking lot , floating on air
Starbucks drinks in her hand
her confidence shining bright as she gets
I've never been nervous around a girl in my life,
But at this moment i feel like running away as fast as I can.
she's almost in front of me
Moving across the concrete with a beautiful stride
aware of who she is and what she wants.
Maybe it's all a dream , maybe she will just walk right by
But on this day
i was about to meet an angel.
As if I blacked out
For a quick second , then woke up in heaven.
Her smile penetrating and radiant
I can almost start to feel my knees buckle
Her blue eyes, beautiful ,intoxicating
Like gazing at a lake hidden deep in the hills on a quiet sunny afternoon.
Her laugh sweet, innocent
Reminds me of childhood ,being a kid
Like my dad could yell out the front door any minute
Telling me it's time to come in.
Her voice soft, comforting

Yelling dad
I liked this a lot. I like the contrast between the "angel" gliding across concrete, and the everyday, "starbucks" bringing it back down.

My favorite part is about being a little kid. Made me think of my dad yelling at me to come in from playing. Nice thing to look back on. Thanks.

An Angel
What a beautiful job you did with your descriptions, I too fell in love with "like my dad could yell..." brings back such wonderful memories of not wanting to come in. I loved this, totally loved it!
