A Tremor In My Heart

I was talking with some friends,
when you appeared out of the blue.
My voice failed in mid-sentence,
at the first sight of you.

When you turned and looked at me,
a tremor in my heart took place.
My heart raced and began thumping.
I saw my dreams in your face.

Your next glance brought with it a smile,
which immediately captured me.
My friends saw the effect you were having,
but you were all I could see.

I apologised for stopping in mid-sentence,
but I had become completely mesmerised.
My friends laughed, jeered and taunted me,
but they don't see the love in your eyes.
