Just Because...

 Do you ever wonder what they're thinking when they turn to give you the up-and-down stare?;-))

I don’t like the way your eyes
Travel my body
Ear-marking its flaws
I’d rather you looked me in the eye
And smiled at me

…because you like me and you hope that I will like you too
And because we are human and need lots of grace, oh my,
Because if nothing else, we have that common point of view
Then, just because of it we look each other in the eye
...and smile!
