It all began with a magical kiss on a January night in 2003.

My heart filled with butterflies and I instantly knew you were the one for me.

You brought laughter into my life and warmth to my frozen heart.

I fell head over heels in love right from the start.

It felt as if my fairytale was finally coming true –

I thought I had it all as long as I had you.

We’ve come across roadblocks and veered off course more than a time or two.

Detours leading us both to someone new.

Often times, fate would intervene and our paths would once again collide.

Sending us full speed onto a familiar, yet uphill ride.

There have been many roads that we’ve traveled on together;

And at times, it felt like it would stay that way forever.

But an all too familiar fork frequently appears,

Presenting new obstacles and fears.

We are faced with the decision to either continue together or apart.

Trying to decide with our head and go against our heart.

But no matter what direction we’ve chosen in the past,

Traveling alone has never seemed to last.

We always wind up back, side by side.

Unable to conceal the feelings we have inside.

Although we’ve broken down and made our own paths along the way;

There’s no one else I’d rather have beside me at the end of the day.

We may have more roadblocks and detours to go through;

But 6 years later – I still believe I have it all, as long as I have you.
