You’re My Love, My Life

Updated on May 25, 2017
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

She had searched far and wide,

for a love that would stay a lifetime.

Too many broken hearts,

were creating a path behind her,

one too many heartaches –

made for nightmares in the night.

When he came into her life,

he was a singer and a dreamer,

so she thought he would love her,

but never for too many tomorrows.

Then he started singing,

his love songs just for her,

she became his soul and inspiration,

she became his muse and his life.

So the she was ready,

to give him her heart

and he was ready to love her –

till eternity.

With you I feel so protected,

so unafraid of what tomorrow will bring.

You’re my fortress in a storm -

my one and only love.

Come take my hand

and walk through this world with me.

Dance with me in the dark,

dream by candlelight,

be there with your bright smile,

making my world so very right.

Safe in your embrace I’ll be,

my love, my life,

you’ll always be for me.

Come round the bend

and as they years roll by,

let the silver in our hair,

turn to gold again,

let our kisses be fiery

and our love heaven sent.

      This is an amazing love story, Rasma. Not many people experience a lifetime of true love. You've taken these lovers from their first dreams to a lifetime of growing together. And their love only got stronger. Beautiful!
