We walk the woods so deep
In search of ancient winds.
We stop to pick a pod to keep
Your purity cleans the sins
That linger from the past.
You rise above the angry din
To make a love that lasts.
You work for others all day long
When children misbehave, you fast.
To start the day you sing a song
As leaves blow through the air.
You take a risk, now we belong.
You are strong and fair
Heaven is in your eyes.
Magnolia signifies the dare.
Seed pods are manna from the sky.
We walk the earth together,
In love until we die.
