I fell in love with you

Underneath the moon

On that March night.

Inside the show

Laughing at each joke

Hidden by the spotlight.

I fell in love with you

Kisses so smooth

That kiss was checkmate

Your hand on my knee

Butterflies in my tummy

Our last first date.

I fell in love with you

Singing out of tune

Sipping on wine.

90’s songs in the background

New memories, old sounds

Passing the time.

I fell in love with you

Dancing in the living room

Four years ago.

Didn’t know then

With each dip and bend

You’d be the best love I’d ever know.
