A wondrous steed

In love, in deed.

My dainty steps.

Taking me…

His castle of love,
His castle of dignity!

My Daisy meadow
Behind him I do ride

I cling so tight
As the horse and I-
And he, take flight.

We stop by a stream
His gentle hand
Forms a cup for me
And with a wild flower,
He kisses my lips
I’m the one,
The only, the first!

We travel paths
Not travelled before
Our love and passion
As none before!

Chorus:
We travel paths

Like a butterfly
In her cocoon
We are as one
Beneath the moon
Its silvery shadows
Cloak us now
I respond to him
Like wind to a bow

Verse 7:
With innocence,
Yet passion fed
Our souls are connected
Together we tread
I’ll wear his ring
And he’ll wear mine
Forever in love’s circle
Till the end of time.

Chorus:
We travel paths
Not travelled before
Our love and passion
As none before!

And still we ride...

Oh Aah Aah
