Growth of Love

Deja Martin 2006 (Glendale)

I knew when I saw you at that dance
That my story would end a true romance.
Your love struck my heart like never before,
Leaving me everyday wanting more.
More of your love to show me the way,
and blossom together till our very last day.
We’ll grow young together and spread our wings,
And fly into the eyes of our true loves being.
I’ll find your soul, and keep it safe.
And love if forever till God takes that last breath away.
In that breath I’d pull you close,
and say three words that mean the most:
I love you…
