Nineteen

A few weeks ago we were traveling in a car full of kids with a blizzard chasing us, roads closing behind us, the travel snacks had been left behind, and I refused to help drive. This song came on the radio, and somehow, everything quieted, and B took my hand and said, "This is our song." I hadn't heard it before. He had.

"Then"
by Brad Paisley

I remember trying not to stare
The night that I first met you
You had me mezmorized
And three weeks later
In the front porch light
Taking 45 minutes to kiss goodnight
I hadn't told you yet
I thought I loved you then

Now you're my whole life
Now you're my whole world
I just can't believe
The way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than its ever been
We've come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then

I remember taking you back
To right where I first met you
You were so suprised
There were people around
But I didn't care
I got down on one knee right there
And once again
I thought I loved you then

Now you're my whole life
Now you're my whole world
I just can't believe
The way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than its ever been
We've come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then

I can just see you
With a baby on the way
I can just see you
When your hair is turning grey
What I can't see
Is how I'm ever gonna love you more
But I've said that before

Now you're my whole life
Now you're my whole world
I just can't believe
The way I feel about you girl
We'll look back someday
At this moment that we're in
And I'll look at you and say
And I thought I loved you then

And I thought I loved you then

We are so busy, but B, you took time to tell me. I've read your card 10 times this morning. Happy Anniversary, Blue Eyes. 
19 years is a long road between 21 and 40, and I've always loved you. I always will.
