We were sitting on my living room floor in my apartment wrapping Christmas gifts for our families. I moved over to sit in his lap. We leaned our foreheads against one another & proceeded to sing our song, “Let It Be Me” by Rosie Thomas, in a low whisper to each other. I knew I loved him then, so when the song ended…I told him. Then, we had our first kiss.
Postscript: He dumped me after a year because he wasn’t ready for a long term relationship. He didn’t know by month 3 or 4? I don’t believe it’s over. I love him still.
