Longing for the day, you'd show your presence.
My whole life, for you I have waited, and dreamt.
Thoughts of all, I had hoped you would be.
The caring you will show, the love I would see.
Lips that are not afraid to speak.
How your love for me, makes you weak.
When under your spell, I am unable to stand.
Arms strong enough, to take command.
Sharp eyes that see down to my soul.
Healing me and making me whole.
With a dreamer’s beautiful mind.
Knowing only loving words, so kind.
Strength found from within.
My heart, I knew, you would win.
The broken pieces pulled together.
Safe here with you, always and forever.
Have hungered, for this kind of love.
Sent to me, on the wings of a dove.
Will hold on tight and never let go.
Happiness I will finally know.
