Do You Want To Know A Secret

     On any given night there are two hearts that are destined for each other. However, they are well contained and concealed from each others reach. Only the secret words, "I love You", can release them.
      These simple and magical words will release them! They  will burst from their area of confinement, race into each other, grabbing hold and dance in the rain of joy, tapping in the puddles of their passion, splashing droplets of magic in every direction! 
 
(Continuing.."Harbor of the Heart" entry ..2/23/06)
 
    Spring came that year, we shared that Spanish 101 class for five weeks. While my heart was on my sleeve, hers was well concealed. I had no idea how she felt about me, if anything at all.
    A party celebrating Spring was made, and we attended. At midnight, people began filing out, leaving just her, me, and another couple. "Lets go for a bite" suggested my friend.."I feel like something in Chinatown". We quickly agreed and were in  his car heading for downtown N.Y.C.
    We made it to the downtown area, the car radio playing the loveable sing along oldies. We drove along the riverside, the imposing skyscrapers, softly lit, were like giant ornaments for the night sky....the water, softly reflecting the light of the moon.
   We were seated in the back, I at one side, and her staring out the car window on the other side.
   The  song by the Beatles, Do You Want To Know A Secret? came on, over the radio
"You'll never know how much I really love you
you'll never know how much I really care.
Listen (do-wa-do) do you want to know a secret?
do you promise not to tell?
...........................................I sat on my side of the car, a huge grin broke out on my face...."gee, if she only knew" my heart spun its awakening call......
my lips went in sync with the song....
"Ive known a secret for a week or two,
nobody knows just we too, listen
(do-wa-do)
I turned to face her.....and behold..she was facing me with a sweet smile and was singing...our eyes locked.....in unison
"do you want to know a secret
do you promise not to tell
I'm in love with you"......
.........it was followed with the softest yet most powerful kiss that I had ever come to known in my short life.....
 
Now, many years later I cannot even recall what occured the remainder of that evening.....I just know a part of my heart was left behind beneath a moonlight night, and in the tune of a Beatle song that liberated it!
 
Sweet liberations to the hearts that silently wait....your turn will come!  ....

Wow....what a sweet story...I have only recently began my journal, but hope that someday my entries will be half as interesting as the one of yours that i just "stumbled across".....I think we all recall a backseat moment, but this one was breathtaking....thanks

I'm smiling because your memory brings forth a sweet memory from my youth.  I was lucky to have one, and the kiss we shared...to this day I still feel it on my lips.  No other since has ever come close...ever.  I will remember it for the rest of my days...

Awww, what a sweet and wonderful entry Marc! Even now I have moments like that but these days when I look over at my DFH he usually looks into my eyes and says "What? What did I do wrong now?" LOL!! ;-)

Memories certainly are beautiful, aren't they?

Mark
ur a true romantic arent ya ??  i love the beatles, esp their first corny sappy stuff! reminds me that men werent always like they are today, and that there is hope.
maybe.
my favorite is I wanna hold ur hand! LOL since when is that what a man asks for first? cripes, ur lucky if he doesnt let condoms fall out of his wallet or glove compartment in front of u.... lol
i'd be happy if a guy was just ecstatic to JUST HOLD MY HAND,  lol
like THAT would happen
but i listen to the song and think
eh, u never know.... maybe.
maybe...

Ah, the Beatles!  Who can resist the giddy good feelings their music emotes?  Amazing that something so simple, yet profound can happen and all else; details and such fall to wayside never to be remembered.
