When Did I First Begin To Love You?

 

Love is a feeling, an emotion that is difficult to describe

It can be shallow and on the surface; this is the kind that will not abide

When was it dear one, that you first began to love me?

When you saw my face, my body and clothes and found out that I was free?

 

Something there is, yes, that causes that first attraction

There’s got to be some notion that inspires you to take action

But once you’ve made the acquaintance and the glitter and novelty wear off

Is there an appeal that is enduring that persuades you to not back off?

 

The secret is deep inside where your heart and your faith are stirring

It’s deep down under where the divine affections are occurring

Yes, all these are the pliable cement that will hold us both together

They’re not capricious and unstable like the temperamental weather

 

But these are the enduring affections that assure our relationship will last

Not the ephemeral allurements like you’ve experienced in the past;

For us both to stay together through all the good times and the bad

Through the times when you’re elated, and through the others when you are sad…

 

You’re wayfaring ship has to have an anchor, a berth or moor to cling to

Or the gusts will thrash, be careful please! That’s the only thing I ask you

I want to be your mainstay yes, because I’ve felt the same attraction

And I want to get to know you better, we’d be fools to not take action

 

The first step is to talk, and to get to know one another

We need to share our likes and dislikes, to make sure it’s me and not another

I want to know of your sincerity and faith, if you’re true to your convictions

If you’ve got special hopes and passions, and you’re not just some contradiction

 

You need to know my feelings about this life, and my concerns about the future

My hobbies and my habits, if I’m a doer and not just a moocher

How long will it take? I can’t answer that, but it won’t be by tomorrow

A month or two? A year or more? No matter. Time we can always borrow

 

The long and short? Let’s do it right. Work together, have fun, ask questions

Then little by little the bond accrues. That’s one plan. Your suggestions?

................................................................................................................

................................................................................................................

Your idea has definite substance; a book is known by its insides

No matter how attractive the cover; it has both its good and its down sides

 

Let’s start tomorrow. You call me and we’ll get together

We’ll both go for a walk, it doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad weather

Bad weather might be better. We’ll see each other react

To an unwelcome situation; we’ll see if our characters remain intact

 

It’s neat for me to anticipate, the future is so inviting

So get ready to let the walls down, getting to know you will be exciting

I think you feel the same way; it seems we’re both in for an adventure

Let’s pray for a gainful conclusion as we start on our life’s venture
