Florida's Foreverly Shores
~Marge Tindal~ 1999
You stopped me mid-sentence
with a softly whispered, "Shhhh."
Then you rocked me to the bone.
You said that you had to tell me
before I figured it out on my own.
You wanted to say you loved me
and had for such a long time.
It was time for me to listen
to what your heart was saying to mine.
I looked at you in astonishment,
so sure that you must have known,
the thoughts you were now voicing ...
had been my very own.
We had been so busy being friends,
we didn't stop to see ...
we had fallen in love ...
me with you
you with me.
And here it is,
looking us both in the eye,
a love so purely simple,
it causes us to sigh.
When friendship goes full-circle
and to this point it comes ...
we can only thank our lucky stars
our love has now begun.
