Hold Out Your Hand

Now as I hold you
Here in my memories
Lost in all the times we've shared together
Once when forever
Held dreams we treasured
Dreams, that through time we would build together

You are my one love
Hearts beat as one love
Now as i wait to feel your hand in mine and
Wait for me there love
Hold out your hand love
Alas, I'll take your hand in mine

As I lay here and life no longer holds me tight
I wait for you to come
And guide me there to where you are so we
can dance among the moon and stars, then

(Bridge)
Gently I'll kiss you
Darling I've missed you
Longing to hold you in my arms again, as
Thoughts of you fill me
Your spirit lives through me
You took my heart when you went away

Now as I hold you 
Here in my memories
Lost in all the times we've shared together
I hear you whisper
Softly you call me
Yearning, to feel your arms around me

You are my one love
First and my last love
Now, as I wait to feel your hand in mine and
Wait for me there love
Hold out your hand love
A breath ... and I'll take your hand in mine

As I lay here and life no longer holds me tight
I wait for you to come
And guide me there to where you are so we
can dance among the moon and stars

(Bridge)
Now as I'm slipping
Life inside me fading
Knowing your spirit's here beside me darling
I feel your hand love
Your kiss on my lips love
At last ... you wipe my tears away .... away (softly)

This is how lyrics are supposed to be done. Almost like you've been doing this forever (not easy). A truly wonderful love song.
