I knew you were someone special
When I first saw your smile today
I knew because the way you smiled
In my life, you would have to stay

Filling my world with a loveliness
Which I greet daily when I see you
I found my heart now deeply falling
And my mind inside knew not what to do

I had to try to find many new ways
That would get you to now to notice me
I wanted each day to get closer to you
So that my presence you would daily need

I knew I had to convince you, darling
In my world, you would have to stay
And I found each night as I slept
Your image would never fade away

I knew now what I was praying for
Hoping you would grow a greater need
To have me close to you daily in life
And you too would always dream of me

Many new things now start to happen
As one begins to fall in love I say
I find many pleasurable emotions stay
Since my eyes saw you that first day

What I embraced now I find I truly need
To fill my life with this in so many ways
And as love continues to grow daily I know
Your reality of love will never fade away.
