How Wonderful to Have You in My Life

How wonderful to have you in my life
All my feelings whirl about my heart
Perhaps I can’t contain that I’m your wife
Perhaps I don’t know how or where to start

You have me always, no matter what you do
A gift I give my gift joyously
Nothing means as much to me as you
Nothing else so fully makes me, me

If I had everything that God could grant
Very little there would bring me peace
Enwrapped in you is everything I want
Rapture, warmth, affection, sweet release

So strong my love. So happy, sure, and strong
A thousand thousand years would not seem long
Reason tells me everything must end
Yet you will always be my lover and friend

~ Nicholas Gordon

My Heaven

I look deep in your eyes.
I see there what I feel inside.
We share something between us,
Neither one of us can hide.

I feel your lips touch mine,
I lose all my control,
All it took was a look and a kiss,
To know you were part of my soul.

I see your hands on my skin,
I want and need you to do more,
The passionate look you give me,
Tells me heaven is in store.

I feel your need against my thigh,
I know you will fulfill every wish,.
We were made to fit together,
And all it took was a look and a kiss.

I look deep in your eyes,
And I see heaven there inside,
You make me feel so beautiful,
What I feel for you I cannot hide.

The Love Of My Life

It only happens once in a life
You find that someone who treats you right

Nowadays it is really rare
To find that special one who will really care.

The love of your life is the one who will be there
Who will always understand and be fair

They wont care what you look like when you wake
Or wont be a phony or a fake.

They will open their heart
And never leave you or be a part

The love of your life will never let you go
You never have to doubt because you will always know

They will show their soul deep inside
And their feelings they will never hide

Someone to spend those rocking chair years
To share the joy and to wipe the tears

To go through good times and the bad
They will be there when you are sad

To comfort your sorrow and your pain
To hold the umbrella for you in the rain.

They will make your sun shine even when clouds are gray
Right by your side until your dying day.

They will grow old together as husband and wife
This is my opinion of the love of my life.

You And I

Shadows dancing on the sand,
a man and women walk hand in hand.
They watch the moon dance in the sky,
then watch the stars twinkle in each other’s eyes.

They hear the waves crash on the shore,
then, just silence… and nothing more.

The horizon, so beautiful,
The breeze, so shy,
as the new day ascends into the sky.

The only people who matter,
Are you and are I.

~ Carla Marie Adair

To Love A Friend Like You

There are lots of things
With which I’m blessed,
Tho’ my life’s been both Sunny and Blue,
But of all my blessings,
This one’s the best:
To have a friend like you.

In times of trouble
Friends will say,
“Just ask… I’ll help you through it.”
But you don’t wait for me to ask,
You just get up
And you do it!

And I can think
Of nothing in life
That I could more wisely do,
Than know a friend,
And be a friend,
And love a friend… like you.

How Can Love Hold On So Many Years?

How can love hold on so many years?
A passion lasts, we’re told, not more than two.
Pleasure is more rich when passion clears,
Pouring forth from love to love renew.

Years of love can gather to an ocean
Tormented in its wild constancy.
When there’s no wind, it seems bereft of motion;
Eastward, though, the waves roll wild and free.

No love can last unless there is the will.
Tapestries are woven by design.
Years pass and love continues, stronger still
For all the daily care to make it shine.

In life, if there is one, then we are blessed,
For whom we can be totally undressed;
Take off ourselves and find our spirits fair;
Hunger for sweet love, and it is there.

~ Nicholas Gordon

Because Of You

I awake each day with a smile
And greet it with a laugh;
The world is a treasure to me
…Because of you.

Every time I think of something sad,
I replace the thought- with you!
My mind is instantly changed
And my heart is filled with gladness.

Every breath I take is meant for you,
I live this life surrounded in joy
And I bathe in the promise of your love,
My soul belongs to you.

Each time I see something beautiful
I want to take it and bring it to you;
My life has so much meaning now
All because of you…

~ Kate Reneigh Woodruff

Love Of A Lifetime

I knew from the beginning of time,
That we’d be together forever.
Some say love isn’t worth a dime,
But the love that we have, proves it all wrong.
Ever since you’ve been a part of my life,
I’ve come to see that I want to be your wife.
You’d do anything for me.
So whenever you feel the time is right,
Feel free to get down on one knee,
And say the words that sound oh, so right.
In front of our family and friends,
We say those sacred words.
Starting our lives together,
We have waited so long.
Our love is so strong for each other,
We decide to have a family together.
Whether it be a boy or a girl,
May it be the most beautiful miracle.
She will have the cutest little curls,
And he will have his Daddy’s little grin.
He will attract one special girl,
Like you did me when we were so young,
Which was such a long time ago.
The kids are all grown up now.
We’ve grown old, but our fire still burns.
We look back on what a wonderful life we shared,
Wonderful kids, and now wonderful grandchildren.
Life couldn’t be any better…
We have lived the love of a lifetime.

~ Nikki Golden

Forever’s End

The end was coming and nearly here
A few more hours until the New Year
And love could be sensed in the air.

It was on that magical winter’s night
Where something finally went right
And love was to show us the light.

It was a pleasure to have you around
A few years after our love was found
Wedding bells would be a new sound.

Seeing you made my eyes open wide
We were ready for this enjoyable ride
And I knew I wanted you as my bride.

Children would come along the way
Blessing our lives each and every day
Together until the end I would pray.

Forever and always, a promise made
So with you and our children I stayed
And this love for you I wouldn’t trade.

Time would pass and the children grew
Looking back on our history who knew
I got older but was still in love with you.

Our kids moved out for they had grown
And our future seemed to be unknown
But one thing stayed we weren’t alone.

Grandparents we became as we grew old
And it seems like time had taken its toll
Our storybook ending will soon be told.

You were my love, wife, my best friend
We know death is just around the bend
But together we will face forever’s end.

~ Darien

No Longer A Dream

Somewhere in my heart beyond all my pride
holds a secret desire so intense, deep inside.
Imprisoned with all my passion and love,
unknown to anyone but the one above.
A desire for someone to cherish and hold,
the need for a love to call my own.

Someone to kiss and make up with after fight.
Someone who can respect all I can be.
Someone who’s strong enough to commit and love only me.
Someone who will be there and kiss away my tears, secure my doubts, and release me from all my fears.

Someone I can depend on to be my friend, someone who can restore my faith in love once again.
This love is like a dream yet to come true,
Or so I believed until I found you.

~ Candice S.

You Complete Me

I couldn’t have lived till now
If it wasn’t for you
I would have been so lost
Not knowing what to do

You put me together
Only now can I see
You make me what I am
You complete me

We’re two different halves
Put together, we’re one whole
Every beat of my heart is yours
Everyday I pray for your soul

It’s just your smile I need to see
When there’s no other remedy
You put me together
You complete me

I’m too scared to let you go
I never want to lose you
If you weren’t here with me
I’d never know what to do

All I feel now are joys
All my sorrows are history
What else can I say now?
It’s because you complete me.

Because You Loved Me (Lyric)

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through… through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

~ Celine Dion

You Changed My World

At times the days seemed so long, I thought I’d never make it through,
Then suddenly, out of a dream, I have met someone like you.
I had locked up all my feelings and I’d thrown away the key,
Until your heart spoke a thousand words I knew were meant to be.
When times turned rough and lonely, and despair fell upon my face,
You comforted me and kept me safe in that loving special place.

You don’t realize what you have and what you’ve done for me,
But the way you managed to steal my heart is what has set me free.
You’ve given me a feeling that no one else could ever change,
Your love has touched a place in me that I always found so strange.
It’s as if you were cut right out of a spell cast upon my heart,
Because the crazy thing about it is, I’ve loved you from the start.

No one in this wide world could touch the feelings we share;
To the seconds I spend with you, nothing can compare.
You’ve opened my eyes and heart just enough and let me live,
You’ve changed my world with magic and the kindness that you give.
My heart was broken, and I thought love was so far away,
But you came into my life and showed me a better day.

Like crystal clear blue waters or a magical sunset,
That moment speaks a thousand words to which no price can be met.
I wish I could just stop time and spend the whole night in your eyes,
For when I’m with you there’s a feeling even I cannot describe.
Although my heart holds painful memories that will never be erased,
You touch me with a love so strong it hides that lonely place.

Heartbreak, loss and misery were all I ever knew,
Until someone showed me happiness and that someone was you.
Your gentle words and loving arms lift me up when I am down,
And, baby, with all you’ve done for me you’ve turned my world around.
Your love is so consistent, like the waves that break on shore,
And with every day my love for you still grows, just more and more.

When broken dreams still fill my days and nothing’s going right,
You reassure me with your smile and give me back my sight.
You sweep a spell across my heart, like a breeze across the sea,
And you fill my world with beautiful dreams & feelings meant to be.
The way you live, the way you love and even so much more,
With every smile that you give, you’re all I could ask for.

You are in every breath I take and in every tear I cry,
You’re in every star I wish upon up in the lonely sky.
Every day with you is heaven, like an angel from above,
A million magic moments sent- to give you all my love.
You are living proof that prayers and dreams really do come true,
And I thank God for that special day he blessed my heart with you.

I could speak of a thousand promises or even bet my very soul,
the rest of my life, I’ll be touched with a feeling no one can control.
Fate, destiny or magic may be the reason that we met,
But all I know is the days with you I never will forget.
Until the day I found you I never knew a love so true,
But from today until eternity I swear I’ll be loving you!
