You are the one I see by my side
Maybe not today
Maybe not tomorrow
But it is your faith, love and heart I seek to borrow
I squeeze you close because my heart is at ease when you’re near
I will be your constant
A friend to lean, a smile to miss
I will not let you down, but this you already know
I can see it in your eyes when you’re with me
In your smile when you laugh
A world of love that I won’t ask to have back
Do with it as you wish
But remember the things you will miss
The pain of even a few days after being dismissed
The pain is as much of a part of this as the pleasure
You have established a new precedent by which beauty will be measured
From out to in
A star child that shines from toe to chin
I will protect you with whatever breath I have left
Absorb the pain and hardship of theft
The world will drain you if you let it
I said I will be there and don’t you forget it
You may give up on me and not even know
You may think this ends with the places I go
But this is only the beginning
Life is one game we ought to plan on winning
The softness of your skin makes me tremble
God is a good God, for you he did assemble
Placed you on this Earth amongst us regular people
Blessed us with a chance to taste heaven before its gates
Could spend a lifetime happy and willing to chase
Because this is something special
We have something many only know in books
Or by how it looks
How they wish it might feel
This is real
Happiness goes something like this
Two hearts
One love
A fortunate favor from above
A sparkle that fits you like a glove
Be happy, be free
I am thankful for the things you have given me.
