Holding hands

How easily I am distracted
From whatever that I do
By the cute flick of her hair
Even the way that she walks
The subtle glance of her eyes
And the waft of her perfume
That now fills the office air

My mind’s never on my work
Others seem untroubled by
This girl with such a frame
I think she really is the best
But clearly just does not care
I’m not in her sights at all
She doesn’t even know my name

I’ll ignore her, which is best                                                          
She’s not the one for me                                                               
How could I ever measure up                                                       
Then one day she’s at my desk
Asks me to help her on a job
“I thought you didn’t like me”
She says ”You’re so wrong, silly pup”

I’m the one that’s now envied                                                      
Cos she and I are dating                                                               
And getting the jealous stares                                                      
How good to leave the office                                                        
She holds my hand so tightly                                                                   
Reluctant to let me go
Love now frees us of all cares
