The girl with the secret eyes

I remember you
The girl with the secret eyes
and the winsome smile

We never walked out
nor did we kiss in moonlight
but I so loved you

I knew where you lived
and often walked down your street
hoping to see you

I thought of you there
with the birdbaths and windchimes
waiting on the porch

You were never there
I wanted to kiss your lips
and touch your fingers

Just where are you now?
Do say you remember me
I still dream of you

  1. That porch is beautiful...i can almost hear it across the miles...

  2. Very sweet haiku, and makes me wonder how many young men or women still harbor a yearning for someone who never knew they were there.

  3. Sweet bitter love, which we think of,

  4. It's sweet, especially with bird baths and wind chimes, but also a little stalkerish with the line about knowing where she lived.

    1. When the poem first came to mind I envisioned a schoolboy crush but nothing sinister.

  5. I love "the girl with the secret eyes".
