Always There


Gazing at a million stars in a night sky
Can not compare to the wonders in your eyes
The sun melts an early morning mist away
My arm around your shoulder in late May

Remembering all the years we have flown through
Knowing during all these years that it is you
You who holds my hand, my heart, my soul
Standing by me as life takes its toll

Old I have grown, weak in body and mind
But assured each morning by my side you I find
The gentle touch of your hand on my arm
Leaves me safe not afraid of harm

Dreaming of our youth every night
Brings back memories of such delight
Then awaking to find that you are there
Never complaining about my gray hair

Looking at me just like I had never changed
Not minding how sometimes I complain
Always there to remind me with just a smile
Of many years ago our wedding vow

To have and to hold through sickness and health
Showing me that in your love I have wealth
Though I am weak your love is strong
At night I rest listening to your sweet song

Visiting our past once again
Beautiful scenes of places we have been
As my heart beats so full of love
Just for you my little dove
