It was monday afternoon and a cool breeze parted my hair like a blooming flower
Long as my hair was it looked magnificently golden as it shown with power
Sweet summer sweat gleamed off of my skin as I ran through the field
Endless energy and spirit my presence could wield
Just in front of me skipping as she pleased.
My childhood soul mate the goddess Genivieve.
Hand in hand we danced and giggled without a care in the world
My first crush was a tomboyish little girl
Silly as it may sound but the truth is this
She made my heart jump and my legs twitch
As the sun wound down into eve
The colors in the sky was a masterful weave
Just as the orange and purple sky grew darker with the passing hour
Angels flew after the fading gold tower
I knew she saw them too! So we talked with smile and gleam
Could we have shared the same wonderful dream?
I knew then on that we were supposed to be
Though now she is much more than a memorie
Every now and again I find myself looking at that same setting
Imagining the girl I once new at our childhood wedding
Now she sits at those same gates and stares into my eyes
while I sit here and blubber and cry
That is not only what she does for me during my time
Her hands steal these keys and formulate rhymes
