I had never given much thought to the idea of predestination until I met and married my beautiful wife, Xiao Yan.
I knew you, my dearest, in long gone days,
Your face did my dreams adorn.
I knew of your grace, your warmhearted ways;
I knew you before you were born.
Before you were born, my treasured one,
I knew you would one day appear
Like bright, golden rays of morning sun,
Or the music of bells ringing clear.
I knew of the beauty of body and mind,
I knew of your wondrous eyes;
I knew of the nature so gentle and kind,
I knew of your spirit so wise.
I knew you, my darling, through loneliness
While I waited for you in my life;
I yearned for the feel of a whispered caress
As you vowed to be lover and wife.
When you finally came I knew it was you
(I had known you for ages before)
So I took up your hand (as you wanted me to)
And I saw 'twas my ring that you wore.
Yes, I knew you, my loved one, from long gone days
When you came on that predestined morn;
I could now feel the grace of your warmhearted ways
Known in dreamings before you were born.
