    I have been considered an experienced speaker and decent conversationalist
    Yet when you come around I can’t seem to get the words out of my lips
    Your beauty confounds me, causing me to act a school aged kid
    But you don’t realize my heart is aching, though my feelings I have deeply hid

    I see you as a black orchid beautiful, gentle, and delicate
    Upon each time I see you I become more and more affectionate
    To gaze upon your eyes lift my heart beyond measure
    And each kiss upon your face eternally I treasure

    I have your number but have never used it because of the difference of our ages
    Yet age is nothing but a number sounds to me as wisdom of the sages
    I have always desired to invite you out to date
    Just to see if you would be my fit as a compatible mate

    I wish to learn French just so I can communicate in your own languages
    Earlier I wrote my heart aches but for you truly my heart anguishes

    I assure you my intentions are honorable you can believe this as true
    That in the sight of God I will always honor and respect you
    You are an ebony queen reigning humbly over your subjects
    My heart beats for you before this day this you never suspect

    So what say you, could you ever see yourself with someone like me?
    A poet, a student, a full grown man full of strength vigor and integrity that has tender affection for thee
    Yes you leave me speechless when I see you, confused and in a daze
    But I want to get to know your depths each and every way

    Well, she must be a "bad mamma jamma" to affect you so strongly. (smile)

    .....and you all goo-goo over a young "Tenderoni" too.

    But, in all seriousness, the last 2 lines spoke volumes.
