I am loved


I remember the first time we crossed and how we looked at each other
It seemed the whole world stood for a minute in my light brown eyes
My heart beat drums when I sit close to you, my mind takes flight, away
The world is dead to me, I keep wondering how happy I am when you stay
But you have made me happy, yes you brought great joy into my life
And I celebrate this new start and life with you! 

So when you look at me

And when you smile at me, 

It makes me glad, very happy!
Now I remember when we cried because our hearts couldn’t hold it
Our hearts couldn’t hold the love that grew in them and so we cried
In the night, when the rainfall storm, the quiet music is of your beautiful love
Now take me, take me to a place where my eyes will see the Beauty of Your Love

Now your smile bring me smiles again
And your embrace support my slumber
For I have been loved by you once
And now know what it means to love
