garden of love

this is the day the buds were in my heart to keep
 as i watched in sombre mood there pearly petals begin to peep
 and as i gazed upon this beauty, my mood became a glow
 as i seen in my heart a beautiful garden that did grow

 this is the day, the month before spring had begun
 yet in my heart I bathed in the beauty of the sun
 i wished that time would no longer pass me by
 for i knew that for your love again that i would cry

 this is the day my heart believed in you 
 that time it had no meaning and in my heart was true
 a garden of love i sent through time
 to touch your heart was so divine
 this is the day i remember with love 
 where a butterfly landed from above 
 on a beautiful rose, in a garden so sweet
 where our love will always meet

 this is the day that youth was still mine
 and the flowers danced in a beautiful line
 to the song that my heart longed to sing 
 but gently fell as gold dust from a wing

 this is the day my garden was light 
 and i will always return when times are as night
 to the garden of love where my soul is a part
 a beautiful treasure to rest in my heart..
