Is it true to say that before I loved you, I lived another day?
I am not so sure, when I saw you standing on the shore, time stood still.
The first time I saw you, you wore no shoes on your feet, paddling in the water just a few inches deep.
I was swept away by your ordinariness and could not wait to meet.
You see, they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I beheld you and could think of no other.
You had long dark hair that hung to your shoulders.
When you turned towards me, I met your eyes blue, with a look of smoulder.
You had a tiny waist, curvy hips, and long legs.
I was powerless to ignore you and got down on one knee to beg.
I begged your company, a walk along the shoreline.
During the short walk I determined to make you mine.
We spent a week in each others company.
Night and day proving our love in every way.
We made a promise not to lose touch.
We craved each others closeness and tender touch.
Our last night together I knew what to do
I got down on one knee to offer my shoe
My shoe a symbol of the first day we met
It was a gamble and I hoped I would not lose the bet.
The last forty years have gone by in a flash
But my beautiful wife awaits and now I must dash
You see I declare;
Love does indeed come from nothing, first there was nothing, then there was my lovely wife.
No other person has ever had such an impact on my life.
That fateful day, my heart was stolen.
My life fulfilled and blessed with many children
