Who knew a casual stroll would end up changing of my life
That I would randomly meet this stranger that would blow my mind
That I could find a star shining at noon
That one person could take my heart out like a tycoon
And mentally incapacitate me with just a smile that strikes like a harpoon

They say love comes best when you are not looking
It creeps onto you with surprise and becomes the best feeling
It opens your heart to versions of joy you could never imagine
Takes your happiness up above every ceiling

I found myself at aww
My sight caught a girl with no flaw
Abundantly beautiful that a mere look dislocated my jaw
With an IQ of over 160 and I couldn’t understand what I saw

Could this be why they say love is blind
I tried to walk up to her but my confidence was nowhere to be found
It seemed she noticed me, so she put on a smile
I knew I was standing but all I felt was my soul drown

I attempted to take a step and found myself floating in thin air
As I gained consciousness I was falling to the ground
It was ironic that I felt no fear I just kept gazing at her smile
I felt the impact of the ground but I was too mesmerised to care

She had a reaction upon seeing my fall
She reached out her hands and said “let me help you up”
I look at her and said ”Yes, I will marry you’’
I might have just fallen but I already fell for you

Lost of words, she just giggled while shaking her head
I said to her “is that your way of celebrating our marriage”
She leaned over to my ear and gave me a breezy kiss
Then whispered to me “wake up you are daydreaming”

I opened my eyes and realised I was still on the floor
The angel like girl I saw taking pictures of squirrels
I quickly jumped up and dusted myself in disgrace
I caught a glimpse of her looking my way so I pretended to tie my lace

She began to walk towards me
I was literally shaking from the inside
She politely said “hi, I hope you didn’t hurt yourself”
I tried to act tough and said “nah, that fall was nothing”

I knew she saw through my lies, because my left elbow was bleeding
She reached into her bag and handed me a tissue
She asked if she could treat my wound ?
I gently whispered “Yes, I will marry you”

She asked me to repeat myself trying to understand what I just said
I said “yes please, that will be so kind of you.”
While she was cleaning my injury I told her she was really cute
She looked me in the eye and smiled then she said “You too”.

Who knew a casual stroll would end up changing of my life
That I would randomly meet this stranger that would blow my mind
That I could find a star shining at noon
That one person could take my heart out like a tycoon
And mentally incapacitate me with just a smile that strikes like a harpoon
