As Winter is to Spring
I often think of you
How the warmth of dew melts Winter snow
What we were is long gone too


There’s a song that comes to mind
One line I do recall
Rúguǒ yǒu xià cì wǒ huì zài ài yīcì
You played it for me last Fall


I wish we’d met some other time
Instead of way back then
If I have another chance
I will surely love again


If we had met some other time
And we weren’t so afraid
We might not be such strangers
Maybe you would have stayed


If we had been much older
If it had been God’s will
If we had been much braver
Would you love me still?


How rare it’s been to know you
And it feels silly to say
It’s a bad line from a rom-com
But I’ve never felt this way


Frozen flowers melt and bloom
A love like you I’ll find
To whoever you are and will become
I pray the world is kind


I wish we’d met some other time

Instead of way back then
If I have another chance
I will surely love again
