And then He gave me you

When I was little so long ago
I used to dream
some day I might know.
Back then I used to believe
the world was lonely, horrible and dark.

That life was hard and heavy
and it saddened my heart.
A hug and a kiss were empty and rare
saying I love you
was nothing but words in the air.

I never knew how to play and to laugh
without feeling like I was wrong and bad.
As I grew older
I remember I started to pray,
"Please God please
if this is my life, take me away."

Then wake up with no sign of relief.
Things would always seem colder
darker and bleak.
And Then...
He Gave Me You.
I never dreamed anyone can love me.
The hugs and the kisses
were abundantly free.

Those three little words
could be said with such weight
that it touched your heart
they made you feel great.

That laughter and happiness
were required in life.
Because they made the cold and the dark
somehow warmer and bright.

Never till then
did I feel I belonged.
That I was wanted and needed
until you came along.

Now when my life
starts to feel dark and so heavy
clouding up my view.
I can stop and find peace
because he has given me you.

You loved me completely
with all that you are
You made me believe I was wanted,
and gave me faith in my heart.
