When I first met you,
Love was something as yet undefined
Yet something I knew would be,
Something I saw in your eyes.
When love began to grow within me
What pain and joy I discovered all at once!
Waiting only for the time I'd spend with you
But still uncertain if you felt the same.
Terrified that my love was unrequited,
Fearful of revealing it
Even when we knew each other well.
Then came that special night
When you said you love me too
And with love’s first kiss you showed me.
And on one dizzy, starlit summer night
We knew our minds and bodies couldn’t wait
Till we expressed our love.
Now each day brings bad and good things to share
And each night brings new ways to show my love for you.
No matter how often we love,
It’s still magical as the first time.
Sometimes I wonder if I’ll always feel the way I do.
We’re both people who learn and grow—
Will we grow away from each other?
Does love die when it grows old,
Or does it just mature?
No matter what the future brings
I know we have something wonderful now.
I can't believe that anything would ever part us.
But if that should happen,
Let it not be with hatred and remorse.
Most people never know in a lifetime
All the love and laughter we've already shared.
Let's not take it for granted.
