As Long As You‘re Near The first time we met， I could see，
That you and I， were meant to be.
Your eyes were so gentle， your smile so true，
When you first held my hand， I just knew.
Now the time has gone by， through laughter and tears，
These days I shall cherish， for years upon years.
Those memories we have， shall never fade，
For those are the steps， that we have made.
That was the past， the future is near，
I anxiously wait， for what will appear.
New homes， more laughter， and children so dear，
Everything will be wonderful， as long as you‘re near.
