I remember you looking down
When I said, "I Love You"
Then I lifted your chin to explain.
That you owed
Nothing in return
No demands or favors attached.
Then it happened
Your eyes lifted to meet mine
And I saw a hungered searching inside.
All the laughter shared
All the unsaid words understood
Built the breath that carried the words.
While romances fade and frivolity dies
When the road we've shared stands the test of time
We can look back to the night...
....The night I said the words.
