you are like a gift (that keeps on giving)

you give me something to believe in
you give me a gift
a gift that I can't always see
a gift that I don't even always know is there
but it's the most important gift
that anyone has ever given me

you give me something to live my life by
you give me joy
like only a child could feel
when playing with his favourite toy
the most fantastic toy
that anyone has ever given  

you give me everything that I ask for
and ask for nothing in return
you don't even realise what it is you've given me
but you never stop giving
even when you've already given more
than anyone has ever given me

you give me memories that will last a lifetime
and you keep them in a box
like a heart that opens
and you give me someone to share it with
and it will keep every little thing securely locked away
that you have ever given me

you give me something that I could never leave behind
and I'll never leave you
would never leave you for anyone else
so one day when we're old
your love will still be the greatest thing
that anyone has ever given me
