It was a perfect day

That day was as perfect

As a star being born

I picked you up

You brought your dog

We talked and talked

Music playing in the background

As we drove to the bleak wilds

Beyond Heptonstall

The untamed wilderness

Between Yorkshire and Lancashire

Where only the bravest dare venture

But we did, we dared to venture

Out into the cold biting winds

That the sun could not warm

We waded through mud and

Battled our way to the

Rocks at Gorple and beyond

Before turning back and making

Our way down to the calm

Of the reservoir at Widdop

Where we sat and drank beer

Before one final climb over the

Wild moor, back to the car

And back home. A perfect day

That I never wanted to end had

To like all things in life do
