Oh My

When I was just a girl, I never thought I’d, ever meet a man like you in my mind.  How do you suppose when we were dating, I could be the one, I’d be your lady?

Just like yesterday, he said:

Oh my, what’s your name?  Are you doing anything later today?  Some friends will be gathering, so it won’t be a date, just time to know you.  I won’t keep you late.

It’s true they say that love can take you places, and all the world you see is advantageous.  Women leave their home to make a new life.  Men are pleased to tell you how they met their wife, saying: 

***

Oh my, what’s your name?  Are you doing anything later today?  Some friends will be gathering, so it won’t be a date, just time to know you.  I won’t keep you late.

Love only takes a moment ‘til you know it.  It doesn’t take a writer or a poet.  The feeling that you get won’t let you let go.  You’ll forever love the one you have and hold.  He said:

Oh my, what’s your name?  Are you doing anything later today?  Some friends will be gathering, so it won’t be a date, just time to know you.  I won’t keep you late.
