I knew you were someone very special
When I embraced your lovely smile today
I knew because of its perfect beauty
I wanted more moments like this to stay

Filling my day with an enchanting blessing
Making my former thoughts easily replaced
For I found myself floating on air today
As I was swept away by your lovely face

I found my mind was easily captured
My thoughts were no longer mine alone
My heart began to beat very rapidly
As I dreamed of making you my own

Like the leaves falling throughout Autumn
I also found myself easily being swept away
By a refreshing smile leaving me helpless
Filling me with a desire for you to stay

I knew I had to find new ways each day
So you might for a few moments notice me
Because since the first moment I saw you
I found my heart would never again be free

I had to choose the perfect time and place
Where we might be able to sit side by side
So I might have the chance to let you know
How much I really needed you to share my life

I found each night when I would try to sleep
The vision of your smile would keep me awake
And my many dreams would be so beautiful
As within each one, I would feel your embrace

I begin to realize what I always prayed for
Would one day soon become so very real
And the first moment your hand touched mine
That second for my heart and mind was ideal

Your love had found a very lovely place
Within my wanting heart that special day
For the blessing of your genuine smile
I found days later in my life would stay

The blessing which really happened days later
As the soft beauty in your face embraced me
Was totally reaffirmed in a single instant
When you said you also shared the same dream.
