At Last by Etta James

I can relate to this song, because it speaks of the joy of finding lifelong romantic love, when it seemed very much in doubt.  It was one of the songs I was considering walking up the aisle to at our wedding, before finally going with Once Upon A Dream from Sleeping Beauty.

At last, my love has come along.
My lonely days are over,
And life is like a song.

Oh, yeah, at last,
The skies above are blue.
My heart was wrapped up in clovers,
The night I looked at you.

I found a dream that I could speak to,
A dream to call my own.
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to,
A thrill that I have never known.
Oh yeah, when you smile, you smile.

Oh, and then the spell was cast,
And here we are in heaven,
For you are mine,
At last.
