When at school I first saw your face,
You were apart from the crowd with your feminine grace.
You had many friends and admirers in tow,
I watched you bloom and into a woman grow.
When in class, you made me blush,
As walking past my desk you'd brush.
You never knew the effect that you had,
The nearness of you made me feel so glad.
You loved to dance and play the flute,
I watched from afar, you looked so cute.
I took a while to ask you out,
When you agreed I'd scream and shout.
We'd go to a movie or sometimes a show,
We loved to hold hands when in the back row.
The greatest thrill I've ever known,
Is to sense our love as it's steadily grown.
Through fields of waving grass we'd run,
Weaving and hiding, having so much fun.
In the brook we'd often swim,
In your little bikini, you were cool and trim.
Your Dad used to lecture us such a lot,
When alone in the dark we'd sometimes be caught.
But I'd promise you were safe when out for a walk,
As all we would do was talk and talk.
It's three years now and tomorrow we'll wed,
When at last you'll be mine after the vows are said.
You know I'll always love you forever and a day,
Until my last breath is taken away.
