The first time ever I saw your face I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were gifts you gave to the dark and the endless skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hands
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was then at my command
My love

The first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last til the end of time
My love
The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face

    Most beautiful song from a true heart of love. Whoever wrote this song knew the meaning of first Love. The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face - instant Love.

    RIP grandma, 15 almost 16 years of strong fighting, it made you week but to us you were brave , it made you fragile but to us you were strong, it took your style, but to us you were still the same woman in the photographs, it took you away but to us you're still in our hearts.
