From the beginning I was drunk
basically stumbling into your arms
you held me up, kept me from falling
but it was too late
my heart was on the ground
begging for you to pick it up
though I barely made a sound.
My soul had never felt such beauty
coming from another
captivated, my words were useless
to say what I felt that moment
but to say I was intoxicated
with each smile and flirty eyes
would sum it up very well
if only those words had surfaced
on the day I fell into your arms.
At the end of your life
as I kissed you good-bye
my tears flowed like whiskey
remembering being intoxicated
by such a precious love.
