Our story is real
Written long before our birth
Always, it’s been you
I remember the very first time I saw you;
instantly I understood that you would be special to me.
I remember, even now, how you appeared a little shaken that day when you first laid eyes on me.
You looked as though you might even drop the coffee cup you were holding.
I hoped that your reaction meant that you felt the same way about me as I did about you.
I wish I had had the confidence then to ask you about your feelings for me,
but being as young and as shy as I was, I just couldn’t.
We may be older, and (hopefully) wiser now, but I think you still look as gorgeous now, as you did that day.
I am so lucky.
