One Year Ago
One year ago was homecoming night
I said yes Right away without a fight
You took me by complete surprise.
I knew my heart was set.
We talked again that night
Knowing everything was just Right.
Homecoming night came by surprise
It was the best thing that happened in my own eyes
One year ago today,
Our friendship grew and grew.
I Realized how deep I cared,
But the feeling I felt was new.
In time I became attached to you.
From a hug, to I wouldn't let go.
I soon saw how close we were,
And the feeling was good to know.
For you, I wrote sweet letters and songs.
You were on my mind all day.
The thought of sleeping was nowhere near,
Unless I knew you were okay.
Before I even thought about Resting my head
I had to know that you were safe in your bed
Then I pray for you
To hope that I stay with you.
It hit me then, what I was in -
A unique and precious love.
For the person I said was only mine,
Was an angel sent from above.
The minutes without you seemed like days,
And the seconds with you flew fast.
I could only wish to see you more,
And make each moment last.
The times I spent with you,
Were what made my heart complete.
I knew one thing for sure,
Without you, my future is obsolete.
And now, we love just the same,
As it doubles day by day.
I stare deep into your precious eyes,
Yet I'm still speechless to what I should say.
With you, I'm in a whole new world.
You bring out the best in me.
It's hard to picture you not there,
When you taught me who to be.
Yes, the road ahead gets hard,
When things may only seem rough.
But because you and I try so much,
We'll stay strong and get by tough.
One year ago today you said yes;
I then promise to always be by your side,
And I promise my heart, so hold it tight.
And so, each night, beside my bed,
When there's only bright stars to see;
I pray that we may never give up,
And will always Remain you and me.
