Love comes Softly

It came to me as I was brushing the hair from your eyes.
I had often wondered, but right then I realized.
You said not a word, just looked at me and smiled.
For me it’s always been so elusive to find,
I thought my luck had run out, and then it came without trying.
Now here it is clear in my mind, how love comes softly.

It doesn’t always have to hit you like a tidal wave.
Sometimes it can creep up on you slowly.
Then you realize you feel it there one day.
Love can come softly.
It’s knowing each other’s thoughts without speaking a sound.
Her fragrance as she passes you by.
That pain in your heart when she’s not around.
I didn’t know love can come softly.

I think of your smile now that we both know.
The way we hold each other and won’t let go.
Feeling it in our hearts surrounded by its glow.
The way you make me feel as a man.
Standing together hand in hand.
It’s loving without pressure and being totally free.
Always being the perfect balance when the other needs to lean.
It’s amazing when love comes softly.
