I thrilled to your yes
When I asked you out last night
I went to bed just thinking what I'd say.
You looked so cool and charming
In your skinny jeans and shirt
Shamelessly, endlessly, the flirt.
The tickets were my treat -
The popcorn - the eats -
Your hot hand, slightly sweaty, pressed in mine
Your grin, it was contagious,
The movie, oblivious -
To your slow, whispered "I love you" in the dark
I giggled with your giggle
Your eyes locked on the screen -
In a trance, your mouth was always curving up
One foot out, one foot down
Or in my lap
We snuggled and snickered our way through
The lights go up and on we go
Quoting lines and giddy
We exchange one knowing look
Through the lot
Holding hands and laughing
I always let you win
And you ask me, "Mom?
When can we go to the movies again?"
