He tipped my chin to look in his eyes
The ones I had avoided to meet
He made me look deep within
And then and there I knew defeat

Feelings I hid from long ago
A life over - it was the past
But his touch is smoldering I admit
Some feelings are just meant to last

He spoke of his love never fading
Brought back the flutters in my heart
Funny how things you had not quite forgotten
With a simple touch can once again start

I told him the past was better forgotten
I had promises that linked them away
He caressed my cheek softly and my pulse quickened
Oh how I wanted to love now away

The girl I once was when he was my hero
Was coming to life before my own eyes
And I exhaled in her exuberance so refreshing
Feelings from before the world made me wise

I tore my eyes away from his slowly
And caught the reflection of my wedding ring
Thought of the growing Id done since our parting
And what Id be risking for a memory fling

I walked away smiling, the flattery boosting
He stood standing, gaping in awe
I guess while looking deep in his eyes
There were parts of myself I never before saw

Sure the emotions of young love are so exciting
But true love wins in the end after all
The love that takes years to build a foundation
When true wont with a temptation fall.


------------------
For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...
