Happy Wedding Day

Sixteen years ago, when we were both about 15 years old (wink, wink), my husband and I got married.  We tied the knot, so to speak, at the Dallas Arboretum, in an outdoor garden, on a Sunday morning.  Coincidentally, this weekend, at the Dallas Arboretum, in an outdoor garden, on Sunday morning, I sang at someone else's  wedding.

During the reception, I snuck in a song or two that I've written about Fermin over the years. Here's one of them, called Shadow~

You don't mind when I'm acting strange, you've seen all my colors and you know how they range
You've heard the dark secrets and you've seen the bright side
All the cards have been laid out and there's nothing to hide from you...

(Chorus)
There isn't a shadow of lingering doubt.  There's nothing hidden that you haven't found.
No stone's left unturned, there's no one but me.
And to you I am no mystery, 'cause there's no part of me that you don't see.

I'm sometimes surprised that you're still here, that you've stood beside me all of these years..
That someone could love me the way that you do, well you make me believe that real love it true
with you...

(Chorus)

You know me be heart, all of the lines
And by now you've got me memorized.

(Chorus)
