“You whispered to me a sweet serenade
and I fell for you all over again.
To the melody of the piano, I swayed;
my attempt to be still, in vain.
We were at peace in that moment, so calm
I’ve never felt like this before.
Never will our love be tamed, we are a storm,
Like birds in flight, to the music we soar.
You make it so hard for me to breathe
I watched us as we changed,
with you, like a sword, my true self is unsheathed
the feelings in my head-space rearranged.
You will remain in my heart, please don’t go,
Powered by the light of a thousand fireflies, together our hearts glow.”
