Treasure Island

Love Awakening!


From that first day,
That you made your way,
Into my quiet life.

From that first day,
You made your presence known to me,
Poured all your heart out to me,
Without holding back from me.

From that first day,
That you made me want to know more,
More about you and your life,
What you're all about,
Who you are.

With open ears I listened,
With open mind I absorbed,
With open eyes I watched,
In awe as you managed,
To sweep me off my feet,
With your impassioned spirit,
And with open arms I embraced,
All that you are without holding back,

The thought of you puts a smile,
To my face every time,
The memory of you brings warmth,
Makes my heart skip a beat,
The sound of your baritone,
Is sweet music to my ears,
And your very presence,
Means the world to me,

I'll say it,
As you say it,
I'm so glad you were were born,
And more so, to know you,
Even better, to be known by you,
And best, to be loved by you.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
