When We First Met
Written by: Kelly Deschler & Mustapha Mohammed
You and I have grown up together
Side by side, through now and forever
The one day I will never forget
Is that summer day when we first met.
How sweet the soothing songs of June
When glory birds would hum their tune
A moment in time, and joys and longing breath
Was the tender day in summer, when we first met.
As the sun warmed down upon the beach
We knew a true love was there in reach
Something captivating held us, and yet
It was only the day when we first met.
When feelings sweet clung to our hastening hearts
The dreaded thoughts of saddest days departs
We tread the earthly fields of lingering dews and wreath
On velvet blushing throngs, the summer's day we met.
Your steady hand resting gently in mine
We watched the stars above shine
Amongst an orange sky as the sun set
On that bright June day when we first met.
Even as my eyes descends into yours and drowns
Even as we dance to night's enchanting songs
We've kissed 'neath the moonlit climes, my love forget
Not the sparkling moment, the summer's day we met.
The changing seasons continuously unfold
And still our love has not grown old
O, how would my heart ever forget
The most beautiful day when we first met.
