How do you know when the feelings are real
Your desire to be close to another each day
What connects you with the heart of that one
Leaving you quiet yet with so much yet to say.
How do you know if the things they say are true
That the caring, the interest, the love is meant
Do you want to share their life so much at times
You lose track of the time and thought you’ve spent.
How do you know that you are the only one they feel
Each of us meet so many through the course of our life
What makes you think that you matter so much to them
That they are willing to share love, joy, maybe even strife.
How do you know that you have been given such a treasure
To share someone elses life as if it were tied to your own
Only that special connection when two hearts become one
Will let you both know that it is something you’ve known.
