1 I fell in love on that first day
with how your blue eyes met mine.
2 When you grabbed my face with both hands
and kissed me and I felt our hearts intertwine.
3 When we stood on a river bank and exchanged bands
and vows of how we would love each other beyond death.
4 But I have learned that love changes
with every new day from loss, to our baby’s first breath,
5 and then seeing all the ranges
of emotions as you became a father.
6 And when you knew you had to say goodbye,
even if for a short time, caused me to falter.
7 Each day away is a sacrifice
that I would not endure for anyone else.
Because I love you.
