Through eyes I’ve seen the horror of youth.
May no child ever have to speak that true.

I wish I may.
I wish I might.
I wish never ever to have to that fight.

Through these eyes a breath I take.
One day soon I will not break.
These fools abound they claim no fake.
This love I have found I will not break.

I found my soul.
I found my mate.
I found the one who will not hate.

I’m often reminded that life is fleeting.
With injuries a plenty and a heart still bleeding.
My soul has been replanted.
My body is on heel.
And with her I hope a kiss to seal.

I love you now.
I love you forever.
I love you then.
I love you whenever.
