When cherry blossoms bloom, I think of you
We walked the Tidal Basin, just us two
The April wind was messing up my hair
But that afternoon I didn't care
I was happy just to talk and see the view.
When snow begins to melt and spring is new
Purple crocus, robins, grass with dew
The kites rise up to meet clouds in the air
When cherry blossoms bloom.
When I was younger and my fears were few
On mountain roads on back your bike I flew
Now it seems those flowers are more rare
I close my eyes and offer up a prayer
Sometimes I wonder if you hear it too
