I saw you there
in a dress of virgin white.
Like an angel descended from heaven
to be here amongst mere mortals.

I saw you there
your almond brown eyes.
Like the moist soil after the rains
full of hope, courage and life.

I saw you there
your dark hair, wavy.
Like the dark clouds trying vainly
to mask the moon’s eternal beauty.

I saw you there
inspiring hope and life.
Like a rainbow that brings a smile
after a cold and dull grey sky.

I saw you there
and knew there was nothing more to seek.
Like the winged creatures love the light
to love you for the rest of my life.

I saw you there
and met my true self.
I never knew a love like this.
This was love, love at first sight.
