All that I am is because of what you gave me
the promise of love and hope, the ability to dream...
Prayers are whispers gently floating in the air
Your voice is the music that soothes me.... your touch is caressing....
Our dreams become memories collected together
I love you for who you are and what I am.......together we are bound....
Two hearts, one love....forever.
