Calling for the Wind

The first time I saw him, I thought he was a child;

Rosy-cheeked and mischievous, he had me beguiled.

The first time we danced, it was just like a poem;

The moment we touched, I knew I had come home.

 

Now Iím standing here, Calling for the WindÖ

And when it comes, Iíll throw my arms out wide.

Iíll jump into its swift embrace and make my body light,

And into endless azure skies, Iíll ride.

 

I loved him so instantly; I knew Iíd loved him before,

In some other lifetime, on some distant shore.

Torn from his side I was by tragic circumstance,

And I knew that this life was our second chance.

 

So Iím standing here, Calling for the WindÖ

And when it comes, Iíll throw my arms out wide.

Iíll jump into its swift embrace and make my body light,

And into endless azure skies, Iíll ride.

 

We had no children; there never seemed the time --

Just our lives together made one perfect rhyme.

Today, when they told me that he had passed away,

I knew what Iíd do to find him again.

 

So Iím standing here, Calling for the WindÖ

And when it comes, Iíll throw my arms out wide.

Iíll jump into its swift embrace and make my body light,

And into endless azure skies, Iíll ride.
