Isn't it amazing what a new love in your life will do for a person?

 

5:00 o'clock in the afternoon
Used to mean...
   
     Day's end
     Kids home from school
     Time to start dinner

But since you, 5:00 o'clock
Has a new meaning...

     Your footsteps on the stairs
     A familiar whistle
     And, "Hi Babe, I'm home"

5:00 o'clock is still...

     Late afternoon
     Hungry kids
     And time to start dinner...

But it is no longer
The end of the day
It is the beginning of
A wonderful new life...

With you!
