Moments of Destiny (for Paula)
From the moment I met you,
I knew there was a fire between us
that even hard, driving rain could never put out.
From the moment we spoke,
I knew that I’d spent my entire life
in search of your deep and passionate love.
From the moment we kissed,
I knew that my heart was no longer mine
and that I’d finally found my future.
From the moment we laughed,
I knew there would never be enough time
to share all the things I need to share with you.
From the moment we danced,
I knew, at last, what the phrase “better half” meant
and surrendered to your gentle touch.
From the moment we walked hand-in-hand,
I knew that I’d discovered my partner
and that my dreams were suddenly within reach.
From the moment we lay together,
I knew that I’d made it to heaven
and thanked God for blessing me with you.
From the moment you agreed to be my wife,
I knew that my journey was now worth taking,
through days of sunshine—
or nights of hard, driving rain.
