I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You

I couldn’t help falling in love with you as…

  • I watched you fold the baby clothes and arrange them in the new (very incomplete) nursery.
  • you whispered a prayer in the morning when you still thought I was asleep. 
  • you sang your loudest in our new house, with no neighbors close enough to hear. 
  • your breathing calmed as I climbed into bed next to you, a few hours after you’d gone to sleep. 
  • you reached over to hold my hand in the car, just like you did the first time, on that long drive back from California four years ago. 
And to think, I thought I loved you then.
