Once all alone

I was lost in a world of strangers

No one to trust

On my own, I was lonely

You suddenly appeared

It was cloudy before but now it's clear

You took away the fear

And you brought me back to the light


You are the sun

You make me shine

Or more like the stars

That twinkle at night

You are the moon

That glows in my heart

You're my daytime my nighttime

My world

You're my life

Now I wake up everyday

With this smile upon my face

No more tears, no more pain

'cause you love me

You help me understand

That love is the answer to all that I am

And I'm a better man

Since you taught me by sharing your life


You gave me strength

When I wasn't strong

You gave me hope when all hope is lost

You opened my eyes when I couldn't see

Love was always here waiting for me
