The first time that I saw you, dear
You were dressed in black
Your hair was beautiful and long
Curved graceful, like the neck of a swan
I didn't expect you, dear
But, still I had been waiting
On that bright March morning, darling
I began creating
Mental sketches of a love affair
One with me and you
Me, the battered troubador
You, elusive truth
Me, I saw it that first day
But, you, you saw it sooner
You told me years later
That right away you knew it
On that morning, long ago
I still see it clearly
My Black Swan amidst the white ones
The One I love so dearly

Every now and then it happens
The exception to the rule
The unanticipated
The unpredictable
Some may speak of miracles
Some may speak of chance
Some may speak of mystery
We'll never understand
But, darling, I don't need to figure out
What I already know
We'll always be together, dear
My Black Swan upon the snow
On that morning, long ago
I still see it clearly
My Black Swan amidst the white ones
The one I love so dearly
