Yes

I held my breath
when I first caught sight of you

As if my soul knew
I was
diving deep

You didn’t notice me
But I saw you
in the crowd

And my heart murmured
Yes

Dressed in white
your smile a beacon at the end of the aisle

My heart pounding
in my chest.
I’m diving deep.

You can’t keep your eyes off me
despite the crowd
of family and friends

We proclaim
Yes
Yes

Years roll by
Sickness, health, children, home

Sometimes
it’s hard
to hold my breath
through the sadness
of diving deep

would you still
choose me out of a crowd?

Sometimes I need to remind myself
yes
yes

But

The way you smile
hold my hand
Still
makes me hold my breath

Now
I know the cost
the joy
I want to
dive deep

I’d still pick you
out of a crowd

yes
yes
a thousand times
yes
