My ever stirring spirit
Eyes like sparkling diamonds-
and on we go into the wild blue yonders
of yesterdays, while singing tomorrow
(You know its only a day away...)
And sometimes when I lay awake in bed
I think of you
and how undeserving I am to be loved by
Seems but yesterday the vibrancy upon this room beheld
the two of us....
searching, reaching, loving, laughing
and left in my depth
in the tiny corner of my soul-
so frightened to say I love you
But comradery, and courage,
a nesting place for a fool as I, I know
For I love you, only my purest-
white, unblemished smile slowly coming across my face
Is this my wake?
Is this a dream, a fantasy, a fallacy
to have believed in you,
and these dreamier things
Is a new life!
Emerging from the deaths
the worldly screaming out
and I come to this room to find a new light
and flickers of love
penetrate and soften my disposition
like never has been known to me
and I stay soft,
like the Lord holds in His ever loving hands day by day
Smiling he gave me a heart to bear all truth,
yet he gave me meaning
when I found you.
