The first time I saw you

I remember the first time I saw you.

Share a house with us you said. 

Just me and my friend you said. 

Your dark hair and eyes captivated me. 

Your army stories thrilled me. 

You were a soldier. 

You were to be my protector just as you protected the nation. 

Six weeks later we were together. 

Was it planned? Who knows?

We fell for each other when we were not looking. 

When we least expected it. 

Into the arms of a handsome man with a smile to die for. 

Into the arms of a handsome man who would protect me for the rest of his life. 

You always made me feel so safe. 

From that first time through to the last.
