My Little Secret

When a person tells a lie
(I have read this.)
They look up, and to the right.

So I asked my sweetheart:
“Darlin’,” I said, “do you love me?”
And my darling smiled in that sweet way
   she has and she said, “Yes, oh yes!”
But she looked up, and to the right.

Now, don’t get me wrong—
I love her.   I really love her.
We are engaged to be married.
But I will have a problem with “I do”
If she looks up with her blue, blue eyes
And glances to the right.
