When I first saw you, you threw your arms out wide.
Tightly was my hold on you, as your soul began to cry.
"Everything will be alright," I whispered in your ear.
But in those big brown eyes, all I saw was fear...

Wait! A gleam of hope shimmering through the tears.
"Love me," your eyes beg
And everything bad that happened before
All but disappeared.

All of my feelings for you came rushing back
From where they had been hiding below.
It was almost as if we were
Parts of the same eternal soul.

We will be together
Forever if you only let us try.
Because I don't ever again
Want to say to you "Goodbye..."
