It bubbles up unexpectedly;
A flash of bright expectations and brighter cheeks.
Caught unawares, embraced by a chaotic joy,
You turn, your amber eyes aglow, shaking you head;
Almost always, you seem surprised at the ridiculous wit
of a love who strives for your laughter.
The work, the random words; those verbal pokes
all just to hear that glorious sound echo from your mouth.
Really, I’m tickled pink!
