'December 9th 1999'
The first time, ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes...
I was holding
you, whilst my bed was being
wheeled back to the hospital room
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the empty skies, my love
I had haemorrhaged whilst undergoing surgery
but I could feel
no pain, we were safe
To the dark and the empty skies
I had expected everything
to turn out
The first time, ever I kissed your mouth
And felt your heart, beat close to mine...
I wanted to know what you smelled like, so
I held you close to recognise your scent
Like the trembling heart, of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love
That was there at my command
You were so very fragile,
so very complete
The first time ever I lay with you
I felt the earth move in my hand...
You remained asleep while we gazed at you,
I could feel the warmth
of your tiny body
and temporarily, time had stopped
I thought our joy, would fill the earth
And last... till the end of time, my love
I couldn't believe you were mine,
, so perfect
The first time ever I saw... your face...
I can never
We're one, but we're not the same
