all i see

we grabbed the corner booth
in the place we’ve made our own
you smiled at the waitress
i pretended to look at the menu

but really it was you
in the corner of my vision
that blue silk shirt
brightening your eyes

i will always make time
to connect with you
to reach across the table
feel your hand in mine

you are the moonlight
on magnolia petals
the ocean air
across salty sand

you’re the one i’ve chosen
from now until the end
in a room full of people
you are all i see
