I'm Always Right Here

(The instructions of this contest were to write lyrics to fit the music of this song)


VERSE A

Oh I know I promised I'd never leave
I'd always stay by your side
Tho' Heaven has taken me, Love, please don't grieve
For that oath, I still abide

I know our nighttime came much too soon
But I'll light your dark with the stars and the moon
And when you feel alone
Just look up to the sky
And I'll be right here


CHORUS 1

You'll see my smile in faces that greet you
You'll know my words in songs that you hear
And every time your heart beats
I'll be speaking to you
In the voice of your soul
That I'm always here


VERSE B

Oh I'll be the sunbeams to kiss warm your cheek
The raindrops to wash it if tears start to streak
And when you feel alone
Just look into your heart
And I'll whisper to you
That I'm always here


CHORUS 2

My gaze will be the eyes of our children
My joys will be their laughter and cheer
And every time that you blink
I'll be winking at you
With a message our own
That I'm always here


VERSE C

Oh death can't divide us our love is too strong
I'll be here beside you 'til your years grow long
And when you close your eyes
For the very last time
I will rock you to sleep
For I'll be right here

I love you, my darling, I'm always right here.

Interesting that the best of the newest and the "old guard" often meet in my contests and I'm honored for both--wonderfully done! Your excellence is now becoming expected!

(2) ... I started writing poetry because my producer thought it would improve my lyrics ... I believe she was correct! Blessings! :-) <3

Thank you so much, Wendy, I greatly appreciate the kind comments! I've only been writing poetry for two years, (when I joined The Soup), but I've been writing and selling songs since I was a teenager, so it comes a bit more naturally. I am recording an album for Hollywood Records right now, (under my moniker Bahku) ...
