"What It Is You Do To Me"

by: Bobby Lincoln

There you sit
smiling
And it's you I watch
wanting
But you don't even know
What it is you do to me
So I keep on watching
and wanting
as I bleed

Every time I look at you
Every time I talk to you
Every time I smell you
My heart continues
melting
And I am forever
dreaming

Whenever you pass me by
Whenever you catch my eye
I feel like I want to cry
Because of what it is you do to me

Your eyes
gleaming
And your lips
pleading
And your hands
exploring
While my heart remains
bleeding

Every time you look at me
I wonder what it is you see
Every time you talk to me
And I hear that beautiful voice
My knees get weak
My stomach flutters
My chest collapses
My neck hairs tingle
And I stop breathing
Just in that moment in time
When you do what it is you do to me

As I sit here
yearning
I imagine you
sleeping
And I want to hold you endlessly
Forever in my arms for eternity
I'll continue
dreaming
As long as you are
living
breathing
being
