if ever one of your dreams falls
i will catch it, and treasure it
softly between my lips
until you reclaim it.
i saw you at the window
wearing a yellow dress
and a white smile.
before untangling your hair
from where it was caught on the sun.
you fiddled with a few blue petals
nervously between your fingers.
like the wind;
so unassuming and beautiful
that it took my breath away—
before taking my heart.
