In Exchange

In exchange for your hand

Ill give you both of mine

In exchange for your heart

Ill give you all my time

In exchange for your love

I will be all that you need

And in exchange for your future

Ill let you plant the seed

An even trade of vows

Maybe said under your breath

A ring in your hand

That bounds us until death

And if by death we do part

We will neither one forget

The love we shared and time we wasted

Which we hadn't realized yet

In exchange for a life with you

I would lose everything, dear

In exchange for your protection

I give up all my fear

In exchange for a partner to grow old with

I will age with grace

In exchange for your last breath

I will take your place
