How close to throwing it all away,
How close to killing what keeps us alive
To closing down your shining eyes
To be deafened to your laughter chimes.
Love is blind but can be blinded
Locked out by selfish whim
But love is strong and fights her corner
Conquering even the blackest sin.
Let’s be thankful for what we share
Let’s enjoy each other’s gifts
Living and letting live
the spark that heals our rifts.
Touch me, let me feel you close to me
Stroke me and let my earthly heaven live on
Breathe with me and let me love you softly
Smile, light my days and warm my nights
Never mind the past, bad times
Just remember all the good;
The sweetest days, the tranquil nights
Your welcomes home; my harbor lights.
