Missed Connections

I saw you in the park last week. I don’t know your name – but I remember your face well. You have the cutest dimples in your cheeks and chin. They make your face unique.

You were walking your dog, and so was I. They played together in the field. That’s when I noticed your magical smile, the way your mouth curls up at the sides, and your perfect symmetrical nose. Your long red hair kept falling across your forehead, until you tucked it behind your ear. That’s when it happened: our gazes met across the field. Did we share a moment? Your deep blue eyes have captured my heart, and they appear in my thoughts all day long. At night, you come to me in my dreams.

I hope that you remember me too. I’m the man with the dark beard, frizzy hair and a Jack Russell terrier. If you’ve been thinking about me too, then call. I’d like to see you again.
