Fragile Meadow

Woman, tranquilly labouring at our love’s cultivation
I do believe, I am fortunate to have met you 

Woman, how ephemeral our grace is in these wind stricken plains
I do believe, it is our fate to reside here

Away from the mountains of youth and safety
In a fragile meadow

Woman, I see you bloom in this sun that we have shaped
I do believe, you are my companion and a true lover

Through our rains and wintry phases
I have come to love you for you 


from The Black Atlantic - Reverence for Fallen Trees (2009), released August 21, 2009
Music & lyrics by Geert van der Velde
