My ears have heard the sounds of spring
A distant thunderstorm
I close my eyes and think of you
A haven in the storm.
My eyes have seen the daffodils
We've walked amongst the flowers
The days were long, I'd sing a song
To brighten up the hours.
My joy has turned to summer bliss
A time spent in the park
As we hold hands and fly our kites
Next to a meadow lark.
My mind is filled with visions
A lovely sun-drenched day
The way the light shines on your face
Does take my breath away.
My mind is veiled with autumn days
As leaves swirl through the air
A peaceful stroll down country roads
We seek God's presence there.
My life is swept by years gone by
The seasons seem to blend
I see you in the golden haze
I feel you in the wind.
My soul is draped in winter wear
The flakes come swirling down
The warmth we share, while standing there
The special love, I've found.
My heart still yearns, my soul does burn
To hold you, oh so tight
Two shadows braced against the sky
One starry moon-lit night.
