Love ... You Have Me ...


In prayers, and thoughts, you continue to be
For your heart's so big, it's enveloped me
I feel so very small - within your scope ...
But, even so, I've not given up hope ...

I know my love is holding you near ...
Even tho' our voices cannot each cheer
I also know my prayers are being heard ...
For your life goes on, so you must feel the words

When your stroke happened, something in me, died
But when your left toes mov'd, twas I, took the stride
I'ved lived for you, as you have now, survived for me
But only when you recover all, will you really be free

My darling, I am with you, in heart, in mind, and in spirit
Even my soul carries part of you (one day you'll hear it)
And on that day - you will recover all of your senses
For then, my love will've shored up all your defenses

- Tristram
