He loved her hair when he saw her first
Her back was turned to him
He courted her with books
And comparing reading lists
She wrote love poems for him
Which she kept hidden
Until a friend convinced her
One drunken work night out
To show her love on a page
And leave him in no doubt
He read the words and opened his heart
And from that day lives interwined
With books and music and love and art
He turns her poetry into song
His music the soundtrack of their hearts
