A Pretty Face

A Pretty Face

A Poem by Jay Ligda

There is nothing like a pretty face

To make the world fade away
Sometimes they shy away
Or they turn around and run
But sometimes they gaze right back
As they draw ever so near
Eyes absorb each pleasant feature
As the words she speaks fill my ear
A voice so sweet as the scented air
The things to say and hear
Balance her material beauty
With a portrait of who she was
Who she was and who she will be
And all the things she does
Essential things that lead her here
To a moment just the two of us share
In this second they disappear
And we draw just a little more near
