    When God gave me you
    My life became complete
    My heart beat stronger
    My vision is clearer

    I write of life, love, and peace
    I speak of hope, joy and pain
    But never did I realize the things
    I share with others would be seed
    Planted for the blessing of you;

    I awaited on the road forever
    Looking at the many pass me by
    Searching for the piece of me
    That I could recognize blindly;

    I sought you in my dreams
    I asked for you in my prayers
    I wished for you in my worship
    And now the God gave me you
    I thank Him in my praise;

    I cry without reason, smile without
    Purpose and sing without music
    In the midst of a crowd and people
    Look to know that love is with me;

    I want to hold you forever, smile with
    You infinitely, walk with you until the
    Days no longer separate from the night,
    And the sands become soft so that I can
    Carry you in arms built for your needs;

    On bended knee I await with one arm
    Lifted high to hold commitment, peace,
    Devotion, joy, trust, love, happiness, and
    Communication wrapped in the anointing;

    Look to the sky? Can you see the clouds
    Forming our shape in the sky as GOD smiles
    Upon the completion of HIS request and
    Now as I lift you up to hold his hand I smile
    To know you would reach down for me…
