I watched you quietly from behind sheer drapes,
Your white dress gently blowing in the wind,
Our three young children ran around your legs,
As you hung washed linen in the new spring wind.
I thought of when we first did meet,
A flower in your hair,
The night we danced the Tennessee Waltz,
Beneath His stars without a care.
Your smile was alluring your eyes so bright,
Your hair smelled of a warm summer night,
Your heartbeat as thunder inside your chest,
In arms, I did hold my one loves quest.
Soon we did marry and my day stood still,
As you now a part of my soul,
Became my reason for living this life,
In a world where your heart I hold.
Now years have passed since we danced the waltz,
And I watched you from afar,
Your beauty still reminds my spirit,
Of when then young you stole my heart.
