Just One Touch

Just one touch

Is all that it took

To confirm what I knew

In just one look


The instant I saw you

My life flashed swiftly by

So beautiful and fulfilling

I fought hard not to cry


It was terrifying and profound

But calmness soon set in

As I realized what was happening

It was love wanting to begin


So I threw caution to the wind

And opened my weary heart

So that yours may find mine

And a life together could start


Many years have now passed

And our love is steadfast

Our life full of joy

And a love that will forever last


Just on touch is all it took

To set my heart ablaze

And know we will be together

For the rest of our days….
