Trusting in Love

When they met they were very young

Just beginning to live

They fell in love

And life seemed so very fine

Whenever she felt afraid

He’d comfort her

And sang a special song

That always made her glad

It wasn’t a very happy song

But it brought comfort and good feelings

So their love blossomed and grew

They went along life’s road

Both hand in hand

The years came and went

And whenever she would stumble

Whenever the tears would fall

He’d sing his special song

And the world would shine again

Soon it was that the years seemed to fly

Memories like treasured pearls

Were made and saved

Whenever he was away

She would think of his song

And then she wouldn’t feel so all alone

He loved to spoil her

With special gifts

And candlelit suppers

He always reminded her

That if someday they had to part

It the angels came

And one of them was left behind

Just to remember that their love

Would never end

And someday they would be together

Beyond the stars

In their twilight years

He always made sure

That there were only bright moments

In her life

Dancing and dining

The woman he loved

Always seeing her

Like the first time they met

Came the time when he knew

That he’d receive the call first

So he recorded his song

And left it for her

The day when he parted

She didn’t cry

She looked up toward heaven

And smiled

She knew he would be there beside her

Then she put on his song

And she could go on

On quiet velvety nights

When the moon was full

And the stars were sprinkled

Across the sky

She’d sit back and close her eyes

And she could hear him

Sing her their song

Then she could imagine

Him right up there

Swinging on a star

And whistling that tune

That simply filled her heart
