Never will I forget that day,
What a night?!
One text was all it took,
And my whole world was shook,
Rocked, flipped upside down,
But it was worth what I found.
I found a love that I had always dreamed of.
I found it right there, in the Meijer parking lot,
Somewhere between those two parking spots.
Perhaps it was the stars,
Or the cars,
Or maybe, it was just love
That finally showed its face to us.
There I was,
Looking into the eyes of my first crush,
Remembering how you used to joke about us,
How you said you would marry me one day,
Remembering the smile on my face as I said, "Okay!"
Who would have ever thought that marriage was for us?
At the time, we would joke. It wasn't serious.
Now it is or could be.
You would really marry me?!
Perhaps that's why I couldn't breathe...
All I know is I'll never forget,
And most definately never regret,
Standing in the Meijer parking lot,
In between those two parking spots,
Looking into your eyes as you say to me,
"I love you, Stephanie Ann Whitley".

A night I'll never forget,
And I never ever will regret.
Dedicated to a friend of mine, and to the night that changed everything.
