First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

The first time ever I saw your face, I thought the sun rose in your eyes.
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave,
To the dark and the endless sky, my love.
And the first time ever I kissed your mouth,
I felt the earth move through my hands.
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command.
And the first time ever I lay with you,
I felt your heart so close to mine.
And I know our joy would fill the earth,
And last till the end of time, my love.
The first time ever I saw your face.
-Johnny Cash
Went to Emeryville with the love of my life today. Walked bay street hand in hand, loving every second of it. We talked about life and how quickly it passes by. Talked about our past and favorite memories and hopes for our future. Like vacations we'll go on, babies we'll raise and albums we'll write and record. Talked about how fragile life is and how soon it can be gone. How we want to make the most of it and enjoy even the not-so-fun parts the best we can since we have each other and a mutual faith in God. To finish off the night, Johnny Cash and Carb free dinner. Now thats the life....

AH! That is a walk to remember...which was also a great movie IMHO.

I can't believe you describe, with such applause, a "carb-free dinner."

Such a Californian! Carbs make this world go round, Kelly! C'mon! It's even in the Lord's Table, for goodness' sakes...sheesh...

Sorry. Had to. Sounds like a great date overall.
