Life
by Danny Eugene Olson

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.
