Remember when you sat beside me
And then looked up to glance my way?
Your eyes, they seemed to look inside me.
I knew that very day
The way I felt; I can't deny it-
That something drew my heart to you:
I could not conquer nor defy it
Till I knew if yours did too,
If what I thought was true.
Remember how I came to meet and know you?
You asked to see the ring I wore.
I held it up so I could show you;
A thing I'd never done before.
You said yours aggravated you some
When playing music all day long;
I said I played piano too, some,
And we played a little song
Which soon turned into two.
In time you were my friend forever,
We shared our secrets and our plans;
And everywhere we went together
Friends saw us holding hands.
We climbed a mountain in the twilight;
The stars winked on for you and me.
Your eyes shone brightly in the moonlight-
Such a pretty melody.
That's all that I could see.
Right then I knew that we were meant to be;
I meant for you and you for me,
To be together for eternity
Through storm or through tranquility.
I came to realize that I need you
Every moment of each day:
I chose that milestone to read you
Poems written to convey
The words I could not say.
And now I play a song and sing
Because I wear a brand new ring.
