In those eyes, tears do brim
All a-quiver are your lips
I've done wrong again
The latest of many slips
I rack my brains for reasons
Did I omit my morning kiss?
Or fail to hail your daily bloom?
What critical need did I miss?
As the baby's due next month
I'm watching my p's and q's
Skating on thin eggshells
Pandering to your mute clues
Then it dawn...

I never used to look at people's faces
My body language was out of kilter
Then I met you and saw the world
Through a life-changing filter
The thing about you that gets me
Is the quiver of merciful lips
On a mouth adorning the face
That leaves my heart in bits
The quiver of fond lips cant be beaten
It makes my soul leap and rhyme
Should yours ever stop quive...
