DID I TELL YOU?

Did you not know the day I talked about?
The day we first talked and endlessly it went on
A stranger he was and a good one he became
Longing and wishing there could be more
More than just the words
And wishing all the troubles could go away

Did I not tell you of the day we met?
Right in the crowd he stood and beckoned from afar
