A Thousand Times

The first time I saw you
I knew that somewhere in time
We had met and fell in love
I knew that I loved you
And had for a thousand lifetimes
And would for a thousand more.

I knew the first time I held you
I had held you a thousand times before,
So familiar were you in my arms.
I knew that I would hold you again
A thousand lifetimes and more,
Each time as wonderful as the first.

The first time I kissed you I knew
I had kissed you a thousand times before
And would kiss you a thousand times more.
The first time we made love
I knew that you were mine
And were destined to share a thousand Eternities.
