It’s been said that I love “Hard” because I’m loud, out-spoken, very honest, opinionated and yet, a true friend. My David is somewhat the opposite. I would say that he loves “Soft” because he’s quiet and soft-spoken and yet, when I’m at my weakest; he is my strength. We met at work in 2007 where we were both dispatchers. I always thought David was a very nice co-worker, but I never looked at him or noticed him in “that way”.
It wasn’t until his Uncle “Matchmaker” Melvin, (our supervisor) suggested we go out on a date, that I began to notice him in “that way”. But after the first date; it’s been “that way” ever since. Like every other girl in the world I guess, I looked for the day that he would “pop the question”. But honestly, there wasn’t a down on one knee proposal by David.
In February of 2010, he introduced me as his fiancée to his family and the next day we picked out a ring and we’ve been planning our wedding ever since. IT WORKED FOR US!! It was the most romantic, heartfelt non-proposal any girl could ever ask for.
Here are the words to OUR song and you’ll know the reason for the title of our story:
I didn’t know how to give my love at all.
The next time I settled for what felt so close.
But without romance, you’re never gonna fall.
After everything I’ve learned;
Now it’s finally my turn.
This is the last time I’ll fall… in love.
The first time we walked under that starry sky,
there was a moment when everything was clear.
I didn’t need to ask or even wonder why, because each question is answered when your near.
And I’m wise enough to know when a miracle unfolds, this is the last time i’ll fall in love. Now don’t hold back, just let me know.
Could i be moving much too fast or way too slow.
‘Cause all of my life, I’ve waited for this day.
To find that once in a lifetime, this is it, I’ll never be the same.
You’ll never know what it’s taken me to say these words.
And now that I’ve said them, they could never be enough.
As far as I can see, there’s only you and only me.
This is the last time I’ll fall in love.
Last time i’ll fall in love.
The last time i’ll fall… in love.
