When you fall in love,
You must know what she’s worth.
If she can rob you of all else,
If she can stay up late at night.
Help you follow your dreams,
And know what they mean to you.
If you can talk to her,
And she calms you with her touch.
If she strengthens you with her trust,
And gives you the pleasures of love and lust.
If she can balance and complete you,
And you love the way she treats you.
You must know she’s wise and loves herself,
Isn’t after your money or proud of her face.
And it doesn’t end here.
She must know what you’re worth,
If she knows what she wants,
And looks for it in you.
If she can talk to you,
And lets you know everything.
If you can sit quietly by her side,
Listen to her and make her light.
Hold her firmly when she’s low,
Make her smile and bring back her glow.
Get together and fight your problems,
Be with each other through thick and thin.
You’ll fall in love, that would be nice.
But it’s delicate, can melt like ice.
Make your love like snow, soft and fun,
Don’t fiddle with it or treat it bad,
Nurture it and let it grow.
Just like a beautiful rose.
And when you’ve seen it all,
You walk slow and have grey hair,
The love will still be beautiful,
And with her by your side,
You’ll know how long you’ve lived,
And why you never grew old.
