When I wake up in the morning, with open eyes, you’re the first thing that I see
A follow-up with a kiss, and your feet hit the floor as we start the day
A kind greeting escapes your lips as you say good morning to me
Anyway that you can be of help to me, your willing to make the way
Coffee is on the menu for me, maybe even breakfast if there is time
So grateful that you care for me, I try hard not to take you for granted
Carrying my bags, open the doors, warming the car, I’m so thankful that your mine.
I am mindful that I must water every seed of love that you have planted.
Warm wishes of god’s blessing as we part our separate way
Wishing to hear your voice, is my cell ringing , are you on the line?
Waiting to see you after eight hours too long of the working day
I know that you see me everyday, but can I see you lunchtime?
You’re an official gentleman, I made the right turn, I didn’t miss the sign.
Cupid had good aim, he didn’t miss because everyday with you is Valentines.
