His breath in my ear, whispering words of beauty,
Always positive and sure,
For even when our love was put to the test,
I knew everything would endure.
His hand in mine, tracing patterns,
An inscribed promise to always stay,
I know that with him, this love is pure,
Opening the gateways of a new day.
Overwhelming my heart,
What is this feeling?
Surely it can't come from me?
For I've been hurt in the past, torn and broken,
A tattered heart no one else could see.
"Keep your chin up," he says. "It'll be alright,"
And I can see now that his words are true,
For as long as he is here, my heart will stay pure,
Because I know that he loves me too.
For when all is dark the sun will rise,
Opening the brightened paths of tomorrow.
And when all hope may be lost, never fret,
A holy miracle will come upon this day,
Breathing the silent vow for all eternity.
