Now You Know
Do you see the sky and feel a sense of wonder?
Do you think of me when you hear the distant thunder?
When you're alone at night, can you feel my embrace,
as I reach for you through the many miles of space?
I never dreamed I would feel this way about you,
I never thought I would say what I'm about to,
so forgive me if I open my heart,
You've given me hope for a brand new start.
You've made me laugh, you've made me smile,
you made me forget my troubles for awhile,
you've made me cry, you've made me sing,
protected by your angel's wings.
And though I hide it, my love still shines through,
I can't help it, and it's all because of you.
How can I explain what doesn't need explaining,
How I think of you whenever it's raining,
how I wish that I was right there by your side,
how when I hear your voice I feel so warm inside?
I want to tell you all the things I haven't told you,
I want to touch and be there just to hold you,
how I long to taste the sweetness of your kiss,
it's you Denise, you're the one I miss.
