Five Second Encounter

You caught me smiling
So I smiled even more
As I see you standing
A few meters away, teasing.

I waved back and started writing
This poem you might be reading
If that happens I’ll be dying
On how fast my heart is beating.

That must be the coffee
Beside my laptop now empty
For I drank it all up
As you walk away.

A five-second encounter
You just stood there
Not a single word you utter
But your smile makes my heart flutter

And that was enough
To overpower the pain
Grumbling inside my heart
Waiting to explode like a bomb.

The Lord surely knows
How to keep my mind away
From this useless worries
That saps away His grace.
