Not sure of where you came from
I find you flying by my side
Suddenly colliding with my fears and hopes
How could you be such a selfless soul

To go across that portal
Knowing that I will see you again
Knowing that you will be looking forward to that

In the meantime
I want to send you this letter
With a pair of wings attached

In a matter of seconds
After losing myself in your deep heart
You made my soul happy
And caused my heart to do a backflip
In your presence, I can be
Be a bilingual goddess
Rambling about dust
In your presence, I am loved
In your presence
I have surely found a heart of gold
