how simple my life is now you are here,
how i cherish each breath,
how i crave the light and laughter you have brought me.
i have fallen in love without taking a step,
fallen into the sweetest of dreams,
how i hope no one wakes me.
the simplest gesture wraps itself around my heart,
where i will hold it forever.
each time we say goodbye a part of me weeps,
though i know it is not forever
to my aching soul it is an eternity.
i see my happiness shine in your eyes,
every time you hold my hand my heart skips a beat.
how sweet life is to be yours;
how meaningless life is without you.
they know nothing of the loneliness before you
nothing of the empty tears i cried day after day,
how do you do it, i ask myself,
how did you banish the fear, the darkness?
you have made me see that nothing is that bad,
that i am strong and worthy of happiness,
you have saved me from myself.
everyday i wake up and smile to myself
knowing you are waiting for me,
knowing you cant wait to see me.
how would i go on if you were not there to hold me up,
to bless me with your love and light?
how i am glad you have found me
my life is now complete...
i am home.
