"It Was Then"
It was then, when I saw your eyes
They shown light: that, of brightest star
Cannot even hide hints of lies---
An oasis of truth, so far.
It was then, when I saw you smile
Caught me off guard, blinded my sight
It was so hot: yes, like a fire
That, which could pacify or fight.
It was then, when I heard your voice
Could compare to a calming song
If I'd die, it could be the cause;
Its rhythm could never go wrong.
