The first moment I saw you
My heart flowed with emotion
I knew you were the girl to whom
I would give my life's devotion.
I'll always remember how good I felt
When I first asked you for a date
I was so eager to hear your reply
Was afraid I had waited too late.
You said you thought I'd never ask
Then you smiled and took my hand
My waiting heart swelled with pride
A happy life for us would be my plan.
We learned soon after we fell in love
That couples don't always agree
Sometimes I do things to upset you
At times you do the same to me.
We are very happy together now
Yet sometimes dark clouds do appear
I know they are just lover's quarrels
I know that I have nothing to fear.
We married for better or for worse
All our storms we will weather
Our life together means everything
We will strive to stay together
