As I turned to you face you, your brown eyes glowed amber with the light of the moon.
“But why couldn’t you have realized you loved me before? Why now?”
“I always knew I’d love your forever, I just never knew I’d fall in love with you.” you said.
We sat there on the street curb beside my car, whispering our words in in the pale moonlight. Each word spoke only a whisper, but every word echoed deeply in my heart.
“I was in love with you, but now I know I’ll love you forever.” I replied.
As the word “was” hung heavily in the air, a single tear drop fell down my cheek.
Timing is everything.
