The World Opened Up

I walked into the room,
My breath was caught in my throat.
I see you, the beautiful person you are,
Inside and out, standing before me.

As we gazed into each other's eyes,
I exhaled. At once,
A rose bloomed, a child born,
The beauty of the world opened up,
And I saw what you could.

The gentle rushing of warmth,
The sweet gentle of love...
Embracing us with a halo from
The breathtaking sunset.

That was the day I met you,
The moment where time stood still.
The beauty of the world opened up,
And I saw what you could mean to me.
