Despair became a destructive friend of mine You gave me strength to stand alone again To try to seek a new happier future once more I was secluded, remote, you cleared my mind You spurred me on and restored inner dignity You gave me back new hope and calm integrity
When I needed words of support, there you were, When my hope was gone and my heart lay bare There with supportive words to carry me through A kindred spirit, warm with compassion and care I found a better place; you gave that back to me That’s how I know how it is to be loved by you
Through the tears you came and gave me sanctuary Your caring love moves me to hope and inner peace A key to our emotion loves pure and true embrace I had lost my belief and had felt my spirit break You have restored my trust, my hope, my faith Your love is a constant a love that won’t forsake
All my life I will be with you forever, my isolated star Without you my life would be an emptier lonelier place When I was lost and alone you gave me a stronger will We can take tomorrow, not a future we could ever know, Looking back from the past and embrace what we have Sweetest soulful friendship and bitterness reality’s pill
You will feel my love and lifelong gratitude It’s so hard to let those feelings die, of how much I need you Sweet memories that will live deep inside and can’t fade Sad bitter sweet fellowship binding and always true To leave the world behind that lives right here in dreams You gave my life back to me and for that I will always, always, love you.
