my heart skipped some beats that night.
I knew I'd talk to him face to face,
I never knew I would feel so safe.
We went out from time to time,
it was July 20th that I first knew he would be mine.
The summer was ending and I thought we would too,
but week to week he proved his love was true.
Months, years, a lifetime it felt,
he came home every weekend and it made my heart melt.
Mistakes and arguments came along and went,
we made it through them all and nights together we spent.
He was smarter than words can say,
when the call came from OSU I knew he could not stay.
I needed to be with him so to Ohio we moved,
our love was stronger than anyone knew.
Our first walk down the isle was a hilarious joke,
smiles and giggles were what it provoked.
A few months went by and we heard some news,
the baby would be here in January, a boy God would choose.
Our second walk down the isle went very smoothly,
the look on his face was what love should be.
We had our kiss as husband and wife,
together we would be for the rest of our lives.
It was only three weeks later that tragedy struck,
I watched my one true love die, I felt I had no luck.
How could he be gone? What did I do?
How will I move on and try to become someone new?
Our lives will never be the same,
but I'm lucky to have been loved,
by someone so beautiful and caring,
my one special person...... my one true love.
