It's Friday night & last week at this time
We were sharing cold beers & hot kisses
At the forbidden club called Illusions
Lost in the moment, the music & each other's eyes 
Each of our hearts were silently in pain
Knowing we would soon be torn apart again
I wish ... I could wiggle my nose 
And just be there with you again
It was the best 8 days of my life
We shared so many adventures
We spent serious quality time together
Visiting family & touring the island
It was all new to me & so exciting
The experiences you shared with me
Were all brand new for me
Cuz I'd never been to the country before
In fact, I didn't even know it existed 
Beyond the stretch of Store Bay & Crown Point
There was a whole brand new world
I was blessed to have experienced it with you
It was real life, real 'Bago life
Dressed in matching outfits 
It must have been amusing for all to see
But it doesn't matter, it was jus 'you & me'
The road side stops for mango & cocoa
The barber shop behind the house
Climbing the three hills ... the amazing views
All the times I've visited, this was by far, the Best!
I tried so many new things; including eating iguana!
The surprises were endless
They just kept coming & coming
You were eager to only want me to be happy
And to have fun ... no matter what we did
Now I look at my pictures & think back
About each day we were able to share
As hard as it is to be apart
It's just the beginning
But it's also the start 
Of something new for us both
Who would have thought
That it was going to be like this?
A brand new adventure each & every day
I love all the little things you do
Seeing your smile alone makes me so happy
And erases whatever problems that may have 
Crossed my path that day
Waiting up for you to get home from work
Sharing Apple Pie at midnight together
Instead of eating dinner
Your snuggles make me feel safe
You're attentive and observant
You don't miss a thing
Sometimes I wondered before
But I don't wonder any more 
You always said to me
I don't want to tell you, let me show you
Now it's my turn to be observant & watch
From a distance
And it's clearly obvious the difference 
This relationship is having on us both 
We're two of a kind, like 2 peas in a pod
We understand each other because we're
Really quite the same in a lot of ways
I love you & I know I'm loved in return
Thank you for allowing me to be me 
I treasure each & every moment 
When I get to see your smiling face 
When I hear you call out Mrs. Roberts 
I'm so glad I was willing to risk it all
