When hearts reach beyond the warmth of a friend
When souls intertwine and perfectly blend
Then love is the promise you make with your life
When you exchange vows to become man and wife
And life, like a blanket of soft snow, awaits
To account and record every step that you take
For every minute thing you do soon will show...
You can never erase the mark made in the snow.
You must never forget how you felt all alone
For it helps you remember love made you a home.
You must never forget how love stands by your side
And never let love take a back seat to pride.
For love keeps the meaningless turmoil at bay
And helps you to smile as you go through your day
Love gives you focus, perspective and sight
And always stands guard as you sleep through the night
And so if you always provide love a place
And you always make love the goal of the race
Then the union in harmony always will win
Though the trials may come, you will never give in
And someday, somewhere, at the end of the trail
You will count all the memories where love did not fail
And the times when your love was all that you knew...
And remembering your promise is what brought you through
For it is not a word, spoken, it is there in your heart
It goes on forever, and back to the start
You can never be told love, it is something you know
When, one day, you see the bridge ... built in the snow.
