Walking in the rain the cold and the dark
Soaked to the skin right from the start
Just a few miles not a great trek
Would lead to a moment I’ll never forget
Not much longer than a few beats of my heart
But long enough to hold that indelible spark
That unique moment that holds everything in its grasp
As the world falls away in a chance taken at last
As the rain became a storm and the wind a howling gale
There was a first kiss against which all others pale
