The moment when I first saw you under

That tree, wind blowing, and our minds racing

The first sight of you struck me like thunder

As you came to me, my heart was pacing

Sooner or later, the path would unfold

Head over heels, for you I’d fetch the stars

Created a story that would be told

Together you helped me heal from my scars


Whoosh goes the wind, like our love nowadays

Although we can’t see it, we can feel it

Side by side till we’re just a breath away

I’ll love you until we reach the summit

Seven autumns ago, beneath the tree

The leaves were falling, just like you and me
