The Wonder of Her Awe

I’ll never forget her presence it made me shiver;
Working the room she leads a trail of puppies
The wonder of her awe made her puppies whimper
It’s a gift watching her self confidence glow

I thought my life had been unfulfilled until now
It seems I’ll always be the tortured soul in the crowd
but I may find my solace and love from within her
And her image has burned into my eye’s retinas

She approaches me as I try to shrink away
Cornered she wonders aloud, “Why are you so shy?”
“Aren’t you satisfied with all your suitors”,I ask
The leashes dropped and the puppies scampered away
