Fate Decides

When fate decides to bring you love
then it's meant to be like a hand in glove.
When you work all day with them on your mind
all because their loving,faithful,and kind.

When that one you love walks by your side
with a love so strong it could hold back the tides.
When you look that soul dead in the eyes
and know your committed with no compromise.

When this old world seems kinda small
and the red wood trees don't seem as tall.
When you just feel free like a southbound dove.
That's a tell-tale sign fate brought you love.

    ok I found it. Under FATE. I should have figured that out!!! I think you did a good job. You followed the rules about not making it religious too. That is good. I see too many people doing religious ones and the judge said not to do that!
