I remember when I first saw you standing there.
Blue eyes sparkling, and full head of brown hair.
I remember how it felt, when I didn't know what to say.
Just standing there thinking how I've never felt that way.
My choking approach, heart racing as I grew close,
and the way you looked back at me.
I remember that the most.
When you looked into me, I was no longer scared.
Asking your name, to your response I dared.
And in so, your voice I found,
was the absolute and most beautiful sound.
As my feet no longer, could find the ground.
I saw your smile, and got lost for a while.
Feeling only the moment of right here, right now.
Standing in front of you,
my only thought, "Oh wow."
More than butterflies, floating inside me.
My heart experiencing, a feeling so wildly.
Everything in the world just felt right.
Then we walked, and talked, together all night.
The greatest day, that I've ever known,
the brightest the stars have ever shown.
I took your hand, we locked eyes, we kissed.
As the world exploded, into a wonderful bliss.
Then the only thing I ever wanted to do,
was spend all my time, together with you.
Your smell, your laugh, your soft little voice.
Even your answering machine, was call for rejoice.
I wouldn't even get sick, when you weren't around.
Just knowing you were out there, always kept me far from down.
I know these days, sometimes we argue we fight.
But in these three years I still feel,
exactly the same, as that first night.
