Keeping Love Alive


Love is a feeling that you cannot hide,
yet it is buried way deep inside,
it really shows just how you feel,
when both of you know the feeling is real,
when it is consuming all of your time,
it keeps your interest as well as mine,
because I have this feeling only for you,
I want you to feel the same way for me too,
a love not returned is worthless you see,
so don't let it happen to you or to me,

I once knew a couple that let their love die,
when I first met them their love was so high,
but, the years passed along and their love grew cold,
the fires not rekindled, the ashes so old,
both are alone now, to go through their life,
once was a husband and once was a wife,
the kids have all gone now and out on their own,
this once happy couple are now all alone,

so don't let this happen to you or to me,
I want you with me for eternity,
without you I'm nothing, with you I'm real,
I tell you these words so you know how I feel,
keep those fires burning down deep inside,
the way that they did when you were my bride,
I will keep loving you till the day that I die,
You'll never wonder or have to cry,
you'll know you are loved and loved oh so true,
cause all of my life I'll love only you.
