You Have to Know


Perfect days they were,

as you were always on my mind.

So beautifully appealing

with your fascinating eyes.

Your irresistible smile, your laughter

kindled intensive intrigue,

and encouraged faithful ties.


Every day from across the way

your exquisite face shone bright.

You had to know

that I would think of you

most every single night.


Your heart felt always close to me,

then life got in the way.

Some unexpected heartache came,

but in all truth,

you, I could never blame.


And now from across the table

we catch up and remember when.

You had to know

that I loved you so,

even way back then.


Our lives have sped so far ahead

to a content and welcome place.

Any pondered paths not taken,

there’s no need

for us to trace.


Imagine a ship across the ocean

that faithfully sails back home.

You have to know

that I’m anchored close,

and my heart

     shall dare not let you go.
