The Love of My Life

My true love, love of my life January of 1988, I became your wife In a ceremony of family and friends Gathered in a little house, I grew up in We were young, in love and so carefree With each other, we longed to be Our journey together began that night A young man a husband, a young woman a wife Dreams of a future, together we share To fulfill each, no matter the dare How we have been blessed from that very day Through the hand of God, in so many ways We have shared many valleys, hand in hand Mountains we've climbed, together we stand You are my strength when I am weak When I am down, you know what to speak You are where my life began You are my partner, lover and friend Those quiet moments, time to stand still Each beat of your heart, I can feel You wipe my tears, chasing my fears away To be held in your arms, forever to stay You bring much joy to my heart Sealed and protected, never to part You sense what upsets my very being You have given my life so much meaning Your kiss still takes my very breath I shiver at the touch of your caress The emptiness I feel when you are away To be home by my side, each day I pray Together we have became as one Vowing from the day, our journey begun Sharing many sunrises and many sunsets Sharing a life without any regret No other, in your place, could I ever see You are so much a part of me You are there when my eyes close You are where my every thought goes You turn my darkest day, ever so bright You are my true love, from the very first sight Two beautiful children, to me you have given While making my life so worth liven I cannot imagine one day without you Never by my side, I wouldn't want to Together in time, may we grow old The best love story, ever to be told Looking back on how blessed we have been Holding each other until the end I thank God each day for our love Beyond the Galaxy and stars above For the very day I became your wife You are truly without doubt, the love of my life Dedicated to my husband, Benton.
