The sounds of music travel through my nerves
as I see couples with each other’s hand they hold.
My heart beats like thunder because I remember you;
and hard as I stop myself, nothing I could do.
I see children playing on the street with their toys,
how I prayed I could see now our girls and our boys.
So the sound reaches this empty brain of mine.
I look at your picture, and you are very refined.
Then I utter a silent prayer to the Great Man above,
to protect you, guide you, and provide you health and love.
So by the time that day I dreamed will come to life,
you will be the woman I could be proud of you as my wife.
