It started out with a glance of our eyes
Then we found out fate held a big surprise.
Nobody thought it would happen that way,
That two could know love in just one day;
That single moment of meeting each other
Would start on a path that went on forever.
But that started us talking
And it started out something
That we both saw instantly
Was the path to sincerity
And sharing our feelings
Of things that held meaning.
We wanted it to be clear
What we would feel every year
And not just this moment
In some rush of excitement.
Somehow we knew it had to be more
Than two people just trying to score
And putting up their best appearance.
We guessed we would go the distance,
So it had to be real and mutually healthy
Because god knows we weren’t wealthy
Or blessed with great track records.
So it had to be good for us both together
Or it would never be a thing we could do.
It had to be a perfect match for two.
And we knew it was
And we knew it because
I was just meant to be.
We called it moo and yee
And that was just the first
Of pet names, not the worst
Because it is still going on.
The thrill has not gone.
It has just gotten much greater
Twenty five wonderful years later.
