    I saw your smile across the room
    When you took a moment to find
    If I was okay as I allowed you to
    Dwell in your moment of success;

    My heart is warmed by your eyes,
    Beautiful hazel with a hint of joy
    And I wonder how I was blessed
    To experience one as divine as you;

    If you only know my thoughts
    Thinking back to our first day
    When a man confident in him
    Struggled to say a simple hello;

    With patience of a doe you waited
    Allowing me to overcome my fear
    By placing my hand in yours and
    Looking into my eyes to see me;

    With a gentle embrace you comforted
    With a confident hug you reassured
    That no matter how far I may fall
    You will be there to catch me;

    When I walked with you down that
    Long hall of the airport I remembered
    The silence between us for the times
    Before were so full of conversations;

    I wore my sunglasses to cover my tears
    I knew I had to be strong for us both
    So that when we arrived at the gate I
    Could collect your tears with mine;

    As we embraced I thought of all we’ve
    Shared and all we will through the molding
    of our hearts and held you closer so
    that the tears will dry on my shoulder;

    and as I walked away I held my head high
    for I felt your eyes on me and I kept my
    pace for I knew if I slowed down then I
    would stop, turn around and embrace you;

    I couldn’t let you see my tears
    I wouldn’t let the pain settle in me
    For I knew the day would come
    When I could love you forever;

    I watched the plane taxi out as I felt
    The first tear roll down my face and
    I soaked my sunglasses as the plane
    Took off carrying my love aboard;

    As I returned to the car, my family asked
    If I was okay for I seemed a little too quiet
    So with my sunglasses covering my tear
    Soaked face I looked to them and said,

    “my best friend has gone home…”

    soaked in tears
    wondering
    how could it be....

    tears had returned
    to replace your presence...

    but only for a moment for
    i shall walk with you
    hand in hand
    woman to man
    today we stand
    as one and i
    await to hold
    you again so that
    i can wipe away
    all the tears...

    weeping may endureht for a night,
    but joy cometh in the morning...

    i see the risinf of a new day together my love
    KNOW THIS....

    my joy is here
    as i watch
    everything fall into place..

    my sorrows were only a moment
    as i know my joy lasts for a lifetime...
