Looking back along the shore,
see the path that we have made,
finding love and wanting more,
walking together, unafraid.
Though the waters might erase from view
scattered footprints in the sand,
we can see them clearly, me and you,
every one, from where we stand.
Doubts have vanished on the wind,
carried off as soon as they appear –
I can’t see around the bend,
but I can banish all my fear.
As I look into your loving eyes,
and see the fire that burns within,
I am filled with joy to realize
I will never be alone again.
what I’ve found in you –
making all things new.
In the deepness of our night,
on the clouds that form our bed,
I can feel your touch, so sweet and light –
thoughts of you they fill my head.
And as I cradle you upon my arm,
feel you drifting into sleep,
know that I will hold you safe from harm –
that’s a promise I will gladly keep.
growing from a seed –
everything I need.
You bring me sweet completeness,
pure grace and clarity –
