Birth of Great Love
Birth of a Great Love
Yearning and searching for love they have hungrily wandered the world
Over and over again only to find something so unkind, partners blind
Unaware of a great love lurking beneath the shadow, the weeping, and the tears
Reality was shifting, stars were aligning, and fate was smiling down
Love would find its way, for destiny itself had sought not to prevent
One couple who wanted to bridge distance and time with such intent
Voices like echoes that sought to climb out of the shadows and find
Each in the other, that great undiscovered land where
Chance and luck bowed down and sought not to intervene
Happiness instead chose to follow, Sunshine erased bits of sorrow
Ambivalent lament took discontent, and found another to bother
Nothing but love they could see in the other, giving them freedom to discover
Greatness of soul, which could not control, hearts bursting with spring
Every song had new meaning; birds started singing, shadows quickly faded
Damning voices no longer, they found their love was stronger, than anything that
Might start to invade, they took heed but would never concede
Young world they had found, laughter profound, with smiles to melt any shadow
Weathering storm with ferocious new faith, and love unrestrained
Old souls with young love, blessed from above, riding life’s turbulent path
Restless and wild, yet tender and mild, compassionate few, with strength renewed
Love with them never to fail, for forged one with the other, promises and more yet to
Discover, a bond strong and eternal, unbreakable and true.
Your love changed my world.
