When I Saw You, The World Felt Untouched - Poem by Gert Strydom

When I saw you, the world felt untouched,
as if you were the first woman
and to you I wanted to give my whole life
wanted to bring a new meaning to yours

while I am astounded by you
and without you
everything precious is missing,
and without you I feel totally lost.

You tell me about your dreams,
about the wild flowers
that only bloom in the hills
while I am falling deeper in love with you

and we suddenly drive high up into a mountain pass
where it's an experience
to together find a wild orchid,
in a place untouched by man.
