While I mostly prefer Christian Music, sometimes I will flip through other stations. I’ve heard the this song before, but for some reason when “I thought I Loved You then” came on the radio last week, tears came to my eyes.
So this is my version for my hubby in honor of Valentines.
I Thought I Loved You Then.
You were my friend first, we had so much fun together just hanging out in a group. Then I found out you were interested in more than friendship. The feelings were scary, not sure if I wanted to go down this road with you, but I’m glad I did. When you became my rock, the one person I felt I could talk to in a very rotten point in my life, I thought I loved you then.
Counseling was the last thing I wanted. Why talk about the problem? It wouldn’t go away by talking about it, but I agreed to go with you. I thought my tears had dried up. I thought I couldn’t care about things anymore, but I still did. In finding freedom from the things that haunted me, the tears fell. Forgiveness softened my heart. When you asked me to marry you that night after my heart had been softened, I thought I loved you then.
On our wedding day, when we said I do. When we laughed over a fallen cake, and cried over a phone call from one who couldn’t make it for our special day, I thought I loved you then.
Now, thinking of you and the few years we have spent together. The intense crazy times we couldn’t agree. The times when we forgave. The times loved. The times we struggled. And the times of fun. Yet, I know, someday I will look back and say, I thought I loved you then.
We talk about our future, the house in the country, a huge garden and animals, children running around. Growing old together, I know our love will continue to grow. I know that when it’s all through, we will still look back and say “I thought I loved you then”
