It started out to be a fling,
A pleasant little jaunt in spring,
But something happened on the way
That changed my life that joyous day!
Expecting just a pleasant tryst,
Instead it seemed when once we kissed
That heaven and earth had passed away
And there had dawned a brand new day!
It seemed so strange, I could not tell
If time had ceased and all was well...
I spoke the words that show I care
And embraced love beyond compare.
From that glad hour 'til this minute
Each thought of mine has had her in it.
Glorious are these days with her,
Time flies by in a streaming blur!
