You had me at Hello

You said hello

And it was a good and well measured handshake to my soul

You asked how are you

And I sun shined and star ran

You said it’s good to see you

And I cried rivers of joy to float us and keep us high and high

You smiled and talked about the weather

Our love was stretching time to its limits,

We were ageless lovebirds painting new skies for cavern beings

You said we should go out sometime

I wanted to tell you that eternity was ours to have

That time was a thief but our love eternal

When we said good byes

I kept a piece of you well hidden in my heart

You left with my breath and I still don’t have any regrets.
