For As Long As I Live, I Will Always Love You

I was ready to give up on finding the one for me

So very ready to put my heart under lock & key

I wanted to fall in love & see it last the test of time

But my track record suggested I’d never know that feeling so sublime

 

Over the years, my heart had been shattered too many times to recall

And yet after each heartbreak, it was all to easy for me to yet again fall

A few times I even broke a heart or two of my own

One way or another, I always ended up alone

 

A hopeful heart can become so very jaded

Leaving that feeling of hope worn out & faded

Would it always be this way for me?

Making mistake after mistake, never knowing how great love could be

 

When I met you, I was not sure what to think

My belief in a love everlasting for me had already begun to shrink

But while your shyness was found by some to be alarming

In the end, I found it to be quite charming

 

It took time for us to bond, to become friends

But others said they knew for awhile how it would end

They said they knew we’d end up together one day

How they saw it before we did, I still can not say

 

But I am glad that they were right

Since you came into my life, within me I found a new light

You’re my very best friend, the first one I go to

The one who always cheers me on & in difficult times, gets me through

 

When you stand with me, I feel confident & strong enough

To become a better me, to accomplish my goals, no matter how tough

When I see your handsome face, my eyes light up the night’s sky

Being with you makes my heart feel like it has wings, like it could fly

 

Thank you for believing in me, even when I am not sure I can

For reminding me you’re with me & that God has a plan

Thank you for being who you are & for all that you do

Know that for as long as I live, I will always love you
