lyrics

I felt your soul within your hand
The day I found your world.
I sensed your touch without demand
And hopes were heaven-hurled.

As fruit when found before its time
Requires us to wait,
The perilous must reach its prime
Before we love our fate.

Your craving for a freer heart
Would make its presence known.
Your pain had played a crucial part:
Your would not live alone.

The bachelor buttons that you picked
Were placed in wild array.
Their petals could not well-predict
That life would lead this way.

A garden is for tasting wine
And resting in the shade,
As two lives learn to intertwine,
Forgoing all charade.

We cannot live for evermore,
But we await no hell.
We’ve walked along the ocean shore
And found the sacred shell.
