The Moment I Knew

Listen to Ivy read The Moment I Knew

 

the moment I knew, silence grew

youthful wisdom plucked from broken wings

part of me flickered inside you

 

you stood amid love he withdrew

duty was your scepter, childhood king

the moment I knew, silence grew

 

you worshipped without pious pew

where ivy crept above fairy rings

part of me flickered inside you

 

you smiled where restrained tears bled through

hands too employed to clutch apron strings

the moment I knew, silence grew

 

humble, quiet when praises due

child of nature’s effervescent spring

part of me flickered inside you

 

caring soul of gentleman true

enriched family one day you would bring

the moment I knew, silence grew

part of me flickered inside you

For my husband on a special day.
