For I Knew (Your Love)

When I heard the news I didn't know if it was true.

So I turned around and looked at you.

Your glistening eyes showed me the truth

And I ran to you and hugged you;

For I knew you were not leaving me.

For I knew your heart wished to stay with mine.

For I knew your hands wished to be with mine.

For I knew your lips wished to be on mine.

For I knew your love wished not to stray far.

Lastly, I knew how much you loved me.

Not by saying you were staying.

Not by saying your heart was not straying.

Not by holding me in your arms.

Not by sprinkling your charm.

But because you said it.

And it meant something real.
