I Will Always Love You

You know I will always love you
Far beyond eternity
Much longer then forever
For you meant so much to me
Longer then a million lifetimes
As long as time has its place
I will always have you in my heart
Soul to soul and face to face
You will be there in my waking hours
I will spend time in your dreams
Two heartfelt souls together
Embracing love as warm as it seems
You know I will love you forever
I can feel you in my veins
In every single breath I take
I can even sense your pain
But there is nothing here quite like it
And nothing that can compare
With the fire and the passion
And the depth of love we share
There’s a friendship that holds us together
Even when we are a part
Through many smiles and laughter
And caring words from the heart
Through the aches of separation
Reminding us just how we feel
Often speaking the words “ I love you”
Is most caringly revealed
You know I will always love you
You are the answer to my prayers
My sweet and guiding angel
For in life no one can compare
With the love that you have given me
And your words so soft and true
To tell you over and over again
I will always be in love with you

I like this very much. Alas, I recognize myself in these lines, having never outgrew the treehouse stage. (smile)
Lovely... With a certain Dickinsonian flavor... A great poet as yet insufficiently acknowledged.
