The Reason

The Reason
January 31, 2008

As the winter snow softly falls
in the stillness of the night
all my thoughts keep running back to you
Even though you’re far away
in my heart you’ll always stay
now and forever my one and only love

Until the sun grows dark and cold
until the moon is gone
In my life you’ll always stay
every night you’ll hear me pray
for one extra moment with you

Until the stars refuse to shine
and the world stops turning ‘round
on this endless race through time
no matter how near or far
my love will travel straight to you

As the march of time may ebb and flow
as the water of the seas
the candle of your love
burns to set me free
I can see your face and hear your words
so soft yet far away
as they echo in my heart to lead me on my way

You’re the reason that I breathe
you’re the reason I can see
that as I journey on I’ll never be alone
even if we’re far apart as we walk along this path
to where our hearts feel free
I can finally see the only place
where we can spread our wings and fly
together you and I

As the storm clouds roll and thunder crash
As the winds of time begins to howl
across the dark and great divide
beyond the sands of time
I can feel you’re warmth and have no fear
as I walk along my way
back to the light of day
and back into your arms

To my light, my love, my all
to the only world that I know
I will never find the words
to thank you for all that you’ve done
to help me on my way
to find this place where we can both belong

You are my reason
the reason I’m alive
