Will I Still Make You Swoon

WILL I STILL MAKE YOU SWOON We walked hand in hand, On a crisp autumn eve. ...Both gazing up At the pretty colored leaves. . Though we had only met Just a short time ago. I was struck by an arrow shot from Cupids bow. . I was not looking For a long time love affair. Had my turn at failure. Felt again I would not dare. . Seems that the same words Came rolling off your tongue. Said you were hurt before When you were very young. . Said you were leery Of anyone you meet. Then you lifted up my spirits When you said "I'm kinda neat" . Asked if you would like To have a warm cup of tea? When you said yes, Surprised the heck out of me. . You had the green tea, And I ordered black. The things one remembers As your mind wanders back. . Well we've been together Now so many years . Had so much happiness Yes, and even shed some tears. . But I still can see That twinkle in your eye. And I still get excited When I hear your sigh. . So how about a walk? For it’s a crisp afternoon. When I whisper that I love you. Will I still make you swoon?
