I never knew our love would be so pure and true.
Every time I see you, you make my heart skip a beat.
Since the day we got together, I have felt so complete.
You light up my world like a shining star.
I know that what we have will go very far.
Sometimes the things that we say are ever so wrong,
But I know that our love will always stay so strong.

You are my one and only,
My best friend,
My sweetheart,
And my true love.
No matter what we go through,
We know we are always there for each other.
When I think of you, I feel a glow,
Deep inside my heart, forever and ever,
We shall never be apart.
