I wrote this piece for my angel from above. She is an inspiration to me and helps me be a better man. It is a small window into the feelings that she brings out of me. Some were familiar emotions and plenty of them relatively unknown. She is the greatest lady I have ever met and she makes my heart sing. She is the love of my life.
To The Love Of My Life
I had spent so many years leering into the vast darkness of night.
I was searching for the answers that could complete the puzzle of my life.
Like so many nights before, waiting for a shooting star to wish upon.
And every time I found one I wished for someone like you to come along.
I used to lie in bed at night and dream a dream of you
And I would fall asleep feeling so alone and awaking as I always do.
To my empty bed with pillows piled to hug like you were near.
And I would feel so sad inside knowing, it was a dream you were not here.
So back to heavens skies I would go at night, and stare up at the stars
And feeling so small amongst it all, wishing upon my shooting star from afar
But after many long cold nights of searching through the skies
On a cold December afternoon I received the most amazing surprise
The surprise was meeting you my love, my angel from above
You shower me with tenderness and uncontested love
You give to me the strength I need to be a better man
And to know what love is really like, you help me to understand
Your smile sets my soul ablaze, and your voice carries like song
You lift me up from feeling down when every thing goes wrong
You complete my puzzle and were the piece I could not find
But now together with you in life I can not get you off my mind
You are in my dreams at night and my thoughts throughout the day
I never thought I could love someone in every single way
I was destined to meet you my angel and that is true to see
I was made for loving you and you were made for loving me.
I impatiently wait until we can be united eternally in life
With me as your loving husband and you as my loving wife
