I used to be naive, I used to trust but then that trust just crumbled into dust the world at large is so unkind, it's true there is the world at large, and then there's you You are the one on whom I rest my soul my naked thoughts reveal without control You are the one to banish every doubt to make me see what trust is all about You are the one I tell each secret fear the one whose fragrant promise lingers near. You are the one who knows my hidden ways Who fills with love the moments and the days You are my fortress sure, my anchored dream I lie still in your arms in flowing stream You are the one who loves without degree the one whose smile erases history You are the lover's hope avowed in pledge A sure security when life's on edge You are my truth, my strength, my everything Because of you, my heart and soul can sing Eileen Manassian
