about

A song mostly about the first weeks that I met my wife.

lyrics

Romance felt electric in that new place,
with so few face-to-face I could call friend.

I was shocked when you ran into me, through and through.
We walked for hours, then I shook your hand and you blushed a crimson hue.
Some possibilities grew into that place of a past that I had left behind, but hadn't quite erased.

Our first kiss felt so natural, effortless and sweet,
and our love bloomed like the magnolia at the corner of your street,
as the wind caressed the tree.

And if your melody and mine are in harmony for a good long time,
I might hit a sour note. Your voice might stick in your throat.

And I have watched you pray, and simply be.
And I have heard you sing the songs of sky and wind and clouds and trees.
A life as poetry, dancing 'round the room.
And everywhere you turn attention, I see beauty bloom.

And if your melody and mine are in harmony for a good long time,
I might sing my part too loud. You might shy off stage and into the crowd.

I hurt your heart in blindness, and dissonance appeared in the song,
so I changed my tune.
You stand beside in kindness, 'til I find accord
and shed my fearful attitude.
And I feel happiness and gratitude!

And I hope that your melody and mine are in harmony for a good long time!
Together, sing past the past.
A love like this deserves to last.
