When I look at you
What do I see?
The girl who first caught my eye,
Who caused my heart to stop
I see through the years
Beneath the lines of passing time
Before the toil and strife of life
Implicated you with its scars.
The smiling and trusting you
Full of hope and adventure
With life stretched out before her
And I smile once more.
Now both of us alive again
Vibrant in each others embrace
Adventure running through our veins
You still captivate my heart.
