Life's Highway

I saw that twinkle in your eye
As you watched that sports car pass us by
Our mini van no competition
For that hot fuel injected engine
I heard the sigh you tried to hide
And knew you'd set your dreams aside
To be my husband, and our children's dad
And never a better one was had
As you stopped for the light, and turned your head
Any doubt I had instantly fled
For much more than a twinkle was in your eye
And you didn't even try to hide your sigh
"I love you, honey", is what you said
"And I really enjoy being a dad"
"I wouldn't trade you guys for anything"
"And I'm proud and happy to wear your ring"
The light turned green, and on we went
And I sat there basking in content
