It was a song about a rainbow that held your interest
And the amazed look on your face when I sang it to you
Across the great divide we reached into each others hearts
Exploring ever exploring, learning to love again.
We debated what to bring, what to leave,
The material possessions we had held onto so long
No longer needed, not in a different world
Where old selves could let go to embrace new personas.
You sent me images of favourite flowers,
The books you favoured adorning your sitting room
The clothes off your back you were to sacrifice
To take on the garb of a new world.
Finally it was the girl in you I most enamoured to
The way you made me smile with the magic of your laughter
Caught in a time warp, a time when love was carefree
We rejoiced the inner child within us was alive and well.
