based on Edward Elgar’s  Salut d’amour (A love letter)


We met as children

Running through the tall grass in the meadow

Both of us chasing butterflies and dragonflies

Never catching a one

Yet catching so much more,

A friendship that was timeless


We fell in love as teenagers

Dancing while our hearts soared

Both of us floating on a cloud

Blinded by each other,

Yet seeing everything

Clearly, for the very first time


We came together as husband and wife

And have shared a lifetime of

Trials and tribulations

Never forgetting the children we once were


Run with me now, my love

Dance with me

Into our twilight

So we may forever be
