i met you in a café, our café, behind the counter. you had the most radiant smile, a warm laugh. the way you looked at me captured me. i was yours to ruin. we talked, you laughed. i watched your lips move, infatuated, in love. you spoke in a glow, spotlight-like. i stared at your stage. don't stop. please go on. i have all day today, tomorrow. no, don't leave, we just met, we just got here. it isn't time to go. please, don't go. remember me. i'll never forget you... or now.
