A Different Place...

I wish we had met 20 years ago... A different place, a different time when I actually had a chance for you to be mine...

Although we cannot change what brought us together today, I don't know why it is so hard for me to think about walking away...

From you and from us... despite the obstacles that stand in the way of our chance to become something more than just yesterday -

I believe in love at first site as silly as it sounds... I never actually realized that that until you came around...

With your unmistakable smile, quick wit and flattery like the devilish look in your eyes whenever you see me...

I know it's real and I know I'm not alone in feeling so strongly that you'll never be gone...

Entirely from my life no matter what it takes for you and me to be together I think we'll always make...

Up a reason to see each other, an excuse to escape to be together anywhere any time - we will do

What we feel we need to be with one another Regardless of how short our time is together...

The quality in moments between you and me is something most people only dream they will see...

Once in this lifetime... No matter how late when love like ours arrives It has to be FATE...

I thought I had lived before I met you but the truth is I honestly had no clue...

About what love means or how it's supposed to be... I settled for less, for men who were not good to me.

I thank God for you even if we have to secretly date for another 20 years... I know it will be worth the wait...
