I remember we met
On that day long ago,
In a far away city
All covered with snow,

In the room of a friend
Who asked us to come
So you and I could meet
'Cause he was my chum

And your chum, too,
And he sensed we would mate
If only he arranged
For this blind date.

How great that someone
Knew you and I
Were meant for each other
Without knowing why.

The look on your face
Convinced me right then
You were honest and true,
A prince among men.

The warmth in your eyes
Told me right away
That you would be kind
Each passing day.

The smile on your lips
Was a sign that was clear
That you would face
Any truth without fear.

How great that someone
Knew you and I
Were meant for each other
Without knowing why.

And all through the years
You proved I was right
On that brief blind date
When I judged you on sight,

When I first saw your face,
And looked in your eyes,
And was swept by your smile,
And sensed you were a prize.

And now that you're gone
I can still see your face
And remember the years
I was blessed with your grace.

I reflect on that day
When we met long ago,
In a far away city
All covered with snow.
