It’s never happened to me before.

Not like this anyway.

I look at you and I smile.                      

I smile because I know,

Deep down I know I want to grow old with you.

Its an ineffable feeling

Its sweet, incandescent

Its a mixture of all things

True and beautiful.

Its that feeling you get

Not when you fall in love,

But when you know you can’t love another.

Its that bond,

That look in your brown eyes,

That thoughtful look you get when you lay down

When you look at the ceiling

I get that warm feeling

And I know, its you

The one I want to see when I wake up in the morning

When I look at you,

I just know, and I smile

Not because I want you,

But because I need you,

And I love you.
