“Love”

True Love

In the beginning
All I wanted
Was your friendship
But as time went by
And the kinship
Blossomed and grew.
Things progressed and then I knew
There was more to this thing called a friendship
But a relationship.
You saw me
You seen straight through me
Through life's agreements and disagreements
But all the while
Knowing I had you
I knew
There were no limits.
There was a time when I had to stand still
Seeking His will
And not my own
Now I know where I belong!

Thank you for your love
I thank heaven above
Thank you for standing strong
Thank you for love and tears of laughter
I thank God for letting me know I belong.

During those hard times,
Oh, how the tears drained
You could have left me to face it alone
But yet with His power,
you remained
With me.
With you a better life could be gained.

What were you suppose to do?
Leave me when I was in my lowest hour?
Leaving me was a chance to devour
By the worse things to transpire and be devoured
But your love helped me to develop
More love, peace, joy and happiness
With those gifts now I am ready
Ready to release
Release my love to you for all the world to see
To see and let it be.
I am truly happy.

I look at you
And am so grateful!
I look at you and am so thankful!

Thank you for your love
Thank you for standing strong
Thank you for love, tears and laughter
I thank God for letting me know where I belong.
With you
A love so true
A love so strong
No need to be prolonged.

The anticipation of happiness is long
awaited
Now I face no fear again
The pain is no longer a threat
Thank you for easing my pains.

Now I'm secured
Ready for flight
This day I know my purpose
This day I know my plight.

I thank you for your love
Thanking you for standing strong
Thank you for your love and laughter
I thank God for letting me know where
you belong.
