I often reflect on my life as I lie under the moonlight.
Sometimes I've laughed, sometimes I've cried,
and sometimes I've just wanted to die...
Year after year, hour after hour,
tic, toc; tic, toc- of the passing moon.
Same old reflections... until I met you.
At first I was afraid to open my eyes,
afraid you were just a vapor in the night.
To my surprise (and this is true) that beautiful women said, "I do."
Now as I lie at night under the moonlight- with you by my side,
and holding you tight, I found reflections of this life
returned to that beautiful night...
In all the years I've been around,
one truth is so profound,
that I feel so lucky to have found you.
Before I found my darling wife,
the one I vowed to love my all my life,
I never lived until I loved, I never lived until you, my love.
I never lived all those years burdened with all those fears.
I've been re-born. I'm alive and it's all because of you,
my darling wife who gave me LIFE.
