I once met a girl
But more than a girl she was a woman
But more than a woman she was a lion
Oh she was fierce, she was defiant

She was free
But more than free she was wild
But more than wild she was untamed
The beauty of it all, she was unashamed

Then the girl met a boy
But more than a boy he was a man
But more than a man he was gentle
Some say their meeting was fate, not coincidental

He got near
But more than near he got close
But more than close he embraced
His embrace tamed her, his arms where her favorite place

When I returned to see the lion wild and free
I encountered a girl who let love remind her of who she was really meant to be
