You Are My All

When on life’s seas I’m tempest tossed, And my hopeful smile is all but lost, When I need to survive at any cost, You are my anchor. My life is filled with simple pleasures, My loved ones’ smiles I count as treasures, When kisses are how life is measured, You are the standard. As time soars on and birthdays fly, My hair is graying, I don’t care why, My mind is sharp, but not my eyes, You are my youth. Love is patient, love is kind, And to the lucky, love is blind, But when it comes to love that binds, You are my love.
