One first kiss was all it took /
My sky caught fire, my earth it shook /
A new chapter in my favourite book /
Deep inside me now, a babbling brook /
Your tui song & lover's look /
Caught my heart, like fish on hook /
And one first kiss was all it took.
One first kiss was all it took.

"Young love is a flame; very pretty,often very hot & fierce,
but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined
heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable." (Henry Ward Beecher)
