Finding a World of Love

She was wrapped up in a world

That included abuse and unhappiness

Never knowing what tomorrow would bring

Her heart seemed to ache

With each new day

Always facing rainy tomorrows

After stormy yesterdays

He had gotten some hard knocks

Coming from a marriage

Which crashed and rocked his world

Love seemed as out of reach

As the skies above

And he swore that there was no one

He could love like the woman who left him behind

Then one day it all came together

The incredible love they found

Rain came pouring down

Lightning and thunder flashed and crashed

He was driving slowly along

Just another day in the gloomy world he’d found

There before him in a cafe

Sat a beauty that captured his heart

He pulled on over

Heading into the cafe

He saw that she was crying

As soon as he approached

He saw that her attitude

Was as aloof as his when ladies came near

So he chose to sit down

And he stared at her until she had to smile

One smile led to another

And they left together

The rainy day turned around

And the sun came shining through

It wasn’t long before they made a world

Of their very own

Her world had become a carousel ride

And he had found what he had long searched for

Now they lived for each other and for their love

And he knew that nothing would ever be the same

The sun would rise and set on their love

And nothing could replace the smiles she gave him

It wasn’t long that they exchanged gold bands

Bound in love forever more
