Loving You

I love you like the morning sun
Like the glow in the moon when the day is done
You’re set in my soul and you give it rest
You’re the light in my spirit and the fire in my chest

I love you like some old time blues
Like my favorite hat and my best-fitting shoes
My heart holds you close in the beat of its song
And I know this is right ‘cause love can never be wrong

I love you like the still of the night
Like the life beneath rain and the thrill of the fight
You’re the laugh in my joy and strength through my pains
The constant in storms and the gift of my name

I love you like the warmth of the flame
Like the cool of the cube on a hot summer’s day
You’re the chill in my spine when there’re no words to say
This love is what keeps me when all else fades away

I love you like the morning sun
Like the glow in the moon when the day is done
You’re set in my soul and you give it rest
Here is my all, you will never get less

  1. That’s funny because I am the first person to say I can’t sing! My grandma could… dad… son… all can really blow. I just happened to find a tune I could halfway carry without offending anyone’s ears. Lol Thank you, though!

    • 🙂 thanks! I’ve never written a song before, and certainly never vocalized one outloud to anyone but myself. But as I was driving home from the airport after visiting my dad, my heart uttered these words to that melody & Xavier recorded me on his phone so I’d remember. When he played it back… I knew I had to set it up on WP so my dad could see it in the hospital. My ability didn’t really matter, only that he could feel my heart. And he did… 😀
