Who would have ever thought
Ever dreamed that it would be you?
I look at you now and only see love
Not sadness or emptiness but a light shining through.
Will you ever understand
How important you are to me?
You give me faith and hope
At a time when my heart can’t see.
All the strength I have left
At the end of each and every day
Comes from your smile
Which I cherish in a special way.
It may be best if you don’t understand
How necessary and special you are to me.
That way your life can be normal
Not tainted by the way I now see.
So, I will forever look after you
Always assuring your happiness.
Protecting you from pain and sorrow
Knowing I owe you no less.
I will remember these times
With a small smile barely there
And never forget what you gave me
The will to be, my life to share.
So, I thank you my darling
Each and every day
Knowing you are my reason
For choosing to stay…
