it overwhelms me to realize how time flew. it all seems like yesterday – a cliché but true – we were just two 16-year-olds with one common goal that is to win a pictionary game, haha.
and today, as we celebrate the seventh birthday of our first child – the love we share with each other *naks!* – i feel more than ever, how blessed i am to have already met the one person i can grow old with.
i know that this love is still very young, as a first *or second* grader has a lot more to learn, re-learn and un-learn. and we’ll have our whole lifetime to share and cherish it. say, another six decades won’t hurt, right? and that is a very very long time.
* * *
you’re in my arms and all the world is calm. the music playing on for only two. so close together and when i`m with you, so close to feeling alive.
a life goes by, romantic dreams will stop. so i bid mine goodbye and never knew so close was waiting, waiting here with you. and now forever i know all that i wanted. to hold you so close.
so close to reaching that famous happy end. almost believing this was not pretend. and now you`re beside me and look how far we’ve come. so far, we are so close.
how could i face the faceless days if i should lose you now?
we’re so close to reaching that famous happy end. and almost believing this was not pretend. let`s go on dreaming for we know we are so close. so close and still so far.
