Just like that

He said,

“I think I love you,”

and just like that and just that quick

a party of one became a party of two.

That party of two grew

until the day

there were three more

and another on the way

and just like that and just that quick

they became a party of six.

There is no stopping time

soon that six blossomed like a dream

and just like that and just that quick

it became a party of fourteen.

That party of fourteen

continued to grow

but as time often does

they each took their own road

and just like that and just that quick

they became a party of eight.

And with each new road

that party will fluctuate

and just like that and just that quick

they will no longer be a party of eight.

That party of eight

will each go their own way

to live their life

and make their own day

And just like that and just that quick

they will each have their own party.

It starts with,

“I think I love you,”

and just like that and just that quick

a party of one becomes a party of two.

  1. Oh – I really like this one!! So true – the words ‘I think I love you’ can create a lot more than we ever imagine! Just goes to prove how even with a well worn phrase, words are very powerful, and create so much! 😀

  2. This is based on a true story! My parents of course. According to my mom, that’s how my dad first said I love you. This all came about because my dad got a dozen donuts for the family. I told him that’s not enough. Then we counted and realized there are only eight of us close enough to come over. I’m glad you liked it 😀
