How Was I To Know

How was I to know my love,
That your heart was the twin of mine?
That each of our souls danced
To the beat of a single rhyme? 

How was I to know my dear,
That you already fell for me?
When you were sun kissed freckles
And I was just all knees?

How was I to know my heart,
That I was your moon?
That years ago a seed was planted,
With a potential for love to bloom?

How was I to know my only,
That I was waiting for you, too?
That all these broken roads I traveled,
Were just leading me straight to you?

How was I to know my one,
That you were to be my forever?
That we were already bound,
So tightly to one another?

 How was I to know my own,
That I loved you, too?
That one day I would promise my heart,
So completely to you?

How was I to know my future,
That I would be here at this alter?
Giving you my hand in marriage
And a love that will never falter.
