I never loved green eyes until I saw
a pair of eyes so beautiful as yours.
I never understood the way love cures
until you turned my frozen fear to awe
and though I know you see my every flaw
still something deep inside my heart assures
that every icy wind our love endures
will only bring us strength to face the thaw.
And when my heart was broken, you were there
to promise that in time the scars would fade.
When I was left alone, alone you stayed
to help me with the cross I had to bear.
From now until the end of all, I swear
our love shall face the winter unafraid.
