When You Know

---

When you look into his eyes
And see your future buried therein;
When a simple cock-eyed smile
Lights the fire from deep within;
When your sentences taper into silence
As his words finish for your voice;
And in a touch of his hand,
You find you have a choice:
You can stay or you can go,
Come or leave at your own will,
And you know, whatever you decide,
He will love you still;
When there is no more right;
And there is nothing wrong;
When in all of life's impurities
You find perfection all along…

That's when you know it's love.
