Did you love me from your heart
Did you love me from your soul
Did you love me from somewhere else

Music on the radio brings to mind a distant time where I am now uncertain if it were reality or only a dream within my mind. A memory of where there was laughter, love and something else that made life complete and full

I looked upon your face
and held you within a tight embrace
your strength made me stronger
wishing it could be longer
but tomorrow comes

1998

Confetti falling from a wooden banister
Smiles and tears
With everyone there so dear
White lace and black tails
circle slowly to an outdated tune
locked in tight embrace
The crowd cheers and prods
A slow kiss promises the future
and all the world
Shining eyes stare into one another's
a special moment to always hold
The magic returns like in the days of old
when she with her bobby socks
and he was one of the jocks
Drive-in movies and backseats
replaced by life's steady beat.
As the music fades into the night
the couple seek only each others sight.
a whispered word
a small giggle

For Yesterday I loved you
Today I love you more
and
Tomorrow promises mountains and the shore
for you have been my island
and the one that holds me up when the storms strike hard
For all the yesterdays
For Today
For Tomorrow
For you

1997

When you are through changing, you are through.
