Whisper the Words

Sarah Lauren09

 

Walker wondered how someone like Alex could be interested in him. He knew that she liked him, but he didn’t know that she was in love with him. Walker went out for a ride to think about how to ask Alex out on the perfect date. He loved her, he really did, but he did not want to hurt her. She was a big part of his life. If he lost her, he couldn’t go on with his life.

Alex thought about Walker all day Saturday. She knew she was in love with him, but she wondered how he felt. He probably doesn’t want to be more than friends. If he likes me, then he can make the first move.

Walker called Alex as soon as he got back to the ranch. “Uh, Alex, it’s me Walker. I was wondering if you would like to go out tomorrow night?” “Yeah, that’d be great!” Alex replied. “So, I’ll pick you up around 7?” “That’s fine.” “Okay, bye.” “Bye.”

Sunday morning comes early for Alex. She gets up and gets dressed to go shopping. If she was going to make an impression on Walker, she’d have to have the perfect dress and the perfect shoes. She finally decided on a red evening gown with black heels. After she had bought her outfit, she headed to the salon to get her hair done.

Walker was cleaning the kitchen when he heard the telephone ring. It was a recording, said Walker.

It was 5:00 when Alex got home. All she had to do was her makeup. At 6:30, she was fully dressed and ready to go. She sat down on her couch and read her book Love’s Long Journey.

At 6:50, Walker knocked on her apartment door. When she answered it, she could not take her eyes off of the sight before her. Walker was dressed in a white shirt with a black blazer and dress pants. “You look very handsome!” said Alex. “Thanks,” Walker managed to get the words out. ‘God, she is so beautiful. Why did I not ask her out sooner.’ They left the apartment and went to Dawson’s. They ordered their food, and when they got done, Walker asked Alex to dance. They listened very closely to the song:

I told you how I feel
With only the truest words
All that I can, all that I am
Is waiting for you
I wouldn't have gone this far
We wouldn't be right here
If I didn't know deep in your soul
You needed me too, so won't you

Whisper the words
The ones that my heart wants to hear
So that I know this is real
Tell me you feel it
Make me believe it
You'll always be there
Whisper the words

The ones you say only to me
That touches my soul tenderly
A foundation to build on
A love that is so strong
Baby whisper, oh whisper, oh whisper the words
Just put your hand in mine
And baby look deep in my eyes
And just with one breath your heart will confess
What we both know deep inside

Whisper the words
The ones that my heart wants to hear
So that I know this is real
Tell me you feel it
Make me believe it
You'll always be there
Whisper the words

Somehow, someway
This was meant to last forever
Fate found a way
Of bringing us together
If you'll just say, please say, please say
Whisper the words
The ones you say only to me
That touches my soul tenderly
A foundation to build on
A love that is so strong
Baby whisper, oh whisper, oh whisper, oh whisper the words

“Alex, I know you may not want to be more than friends, but I love you!” With that being said he kissed her. “Walker,” Alex was nearly in tears, “I love you too, and I do want to be more than friends.”

From then on, Walker and Alex were an official couple.

This song reminds me of my relationship with my best friend. We’ve been through ups and downs, and we manage to get through it. I want to tell him I love him, but I’m not ready for that yet.

This song is called Whisper the words by Lila Mccann on the album Complete.
