I was more than a little in love
Fitted to you----The proverbial glove
Caught up in requited fire
Touching the stars, yet ebbing higher.
Didn't matter that we'd barely met
My first--my last----I kinda forget.
It was more than a sensual fling
Couldn't be--but it was---that's the thing.
A lifetime and many miles apart
Yet you managed to capture my heart.
Don't know when that plan of never
Turned into some kind of forever
But it did-----Just because
And we liked how it was.
What do I do now that you're gone
I can't just erase and move on
But somehow there's no choice
So I hold on to your voice
And save your words in my mail
just in case old memories fail.
I never got a real goodbye
And I miss you, but I will not cry
That isn't what you'd want to see
Life stages--changes, meant to be.
There's a hole in my heart, but I'm standing strong
Anything less would be all wrong
Yes, I fell more than a little in love
What began as a nudge became a shove
Knew I could love you if I just let myself
You always stood apart from everyone else
So you you gave me permission to love you
To caress your very soul
And the part of heart you gave to me
made my broken spirit whole.
Yes, I was more than a little in love.
