“Just a passing thing they said you’d be
but a long time passing you’ll be to me
you came to me in the heat of the night
Oh, my love, you shine so bright!
The night our bodies were entwined
the feelings were passion and love combined
yes, a long time coming, i know it is true
you are taking my heart with you”
I will take this gift, this sign of life,
and hold it dear for my whole life
your heart, our heart, it is a precious gem
like a rose before bloom is naught but stem.
I see it, bright, just there, within my mind
our bloom of love will stand the tests of time
