Now, Only Now

Every day
I give and you take
I receive, and you bestow more
Now, only now, do I understand
What husband and wife stands for
(In every way)

Each new dawn
A beautiful adventure
Living as one no longer concealed
Now, only now, do I realize
How over and over love is revealed
(In the simplest actions)

Upon falling night
We hold fast to each other
Raw, exposed, blessed, kind
Now, only now, do I acknowledge
How naked and unashamed blows my mind
(Even in the light of day)

Never before
Have I been fed this entirely
Loved so intensely without holding so tight
Now, only now, do I know
Why you and me are perfectly right
