Song Lyrics - We Will Begin

All the little problems are gone
Now it’s time for life
I thought marriage was tough
Now I don’t want to lose my wife

You show me how to live
As you wake up to suffer again
But the look of love in your eye
Tells me that today we will begin

We will begin
To live baby
We will begin
To love baby
Like we never knew we could
We will begin baby
To love like I always thought we should

I never really lived
Until I thought of losing you
I know God may want to bring you home
But I want you home too

Let’s begin baby
Let me hold your pain
Let me take your hand
Let me suffer with you
Because it’s all I know
It's all I know to do

It’s all I know
I’ll never be the same
I thought I was a man
Until I saw how you live with pain

You cried out when our baby was born
And you cry today
But you walk with angels
While I kneel down and pray

Yes baby I love you
You have become my rock
We can cry about hard times
But I won’t let the hands move on the clock

We will begin
To live baby
We will begin
To love baby
Like we never knew we could
We will begin baby
To love like I always thought we should

I could see these words sung to several different styles of music. I wonder what kind you had in mind...

That was quick man! I wrote this tonight for my college roommate... I just found out his wife has cancer... I don't know about the music... what do you think? I guess I just thought about the words... as usual.

Hmmm... most rock music, the instruments are too loud. Because these words have meaning, you'd probably want something that puts emphasis on the lyrics. Perhaps country, or even a Leonard Cohen-style guitar strumming ballad.

I think you're right man... it's aimed right at the heart and the realization of what you have as you face losing that person to cancer... it needs some loving defiance as they are going to assume all this is just a test and they will come out the other side with a new outlook...

Your friend is so fortunate to have you to put his love and thoughts into such a beautiful poem. Best of luck to them for her full and speedy recovery.

@Micky Dee - back at ya' man! They are going through hell right now; the hell of fear, doubt, uncertainty... I hope they can make it through to the other side in one piece...

@Azure_sky - I don't know how fortunate they are as far as my efforts but when we hear of things like this the helplessness is very frustrating... you know it's a "there but for the grace of God go I" type deal and you watch and wonder.... we're all in a fox-hole in a war of sorts and we see the casualties all around us. It's a wonder we can even function... no wonder there are drug and alcohol problems... it's the escape from the reality of our situation...

Pure beauty and poignancy, SP. You've written the feelings so personally, I thought they were your own.

@Nellieanna - thank you so much for your sweet comments. I live in fear of death like anyone else; especially the fear of losing someone I truly love. It's easy for me to feel what they feel. I'm surprised it's so hard for people sometimes to empathize.... you just have to sit for a minute and dwell on it and it all comes pouring into your mind....

I, too, thought they were your own. Glad to know they are not, but think it deep, true love for those close and strangers, too, to put this in words. Shades of some "golden oldies" that used to make me cry. Touching.

@Teylina - I've known my friend since 1977... I know how he thinks and it was easy to put myself into his shoes on this one... thank you for saying such nice things about this song...

It's interesting how we are always shocked when someone dies as if that is unusual. It's something every human being has to deal with. We have to have enough enjoyment in this life that keeps us from dwelling on this. The very young think they are invincible and the very old are much more accepting. It's the middle part that is hard.

Very lovely song lyrics, I could hear the music by reading the lyrics... Made my day; thank you for sharing.

@Silent - Thank you. Unfortunately this song is all too real and all too sad. I wrote it to my college roommate because his wife had melanoma and she passed away a few months ago.... it sucks...
