I can’t believe
That the months have gone by
And the passion still rages
Like our first week together.
The electric jitters have been replaced
With knowing stares and secret smiles.
Second date or 522nd your hand
still falls on my lap in the car.
So many firsts have been shared
But my love for you still feels brand new
Still sad when I leave your place
Because I can never spend enough time with you
I love you’s used to get stuck in the back of my throat
Now they’re tumbling out of my mouth like salmon swimming upstream.
I thought these feelings might have settled by now
But this beating in my chest is and always will be for you.
