There’s a chill in the air tonight, but it’s warm in my bed because you’re here with me; the look in your eyes warming me like a summer night as we cuddle, talk and laugh. There has never been anyone like you before, and I hope I never have to wonder again will I find anyone like you. The others all had their qualities, but none compare to you. Each kiss we share, each time you smile, only confirms that my heart belongs to you. I don’t know everything, but this I know is true.
Patti Austin and James Ingram once asked in song:
How do you keep the music playing?
How do you make it last?
How do you keep the song from fading Too fast?
How do you lose yourself to someone And never lose your way?
How do you not run out of new things To say?
And since you know we’re always changing How can it be the same?
I may have lost myself to you but in doing so I found my way.
I’ll never run out of new things to say because your intelligence and beauty inspire me.
I may always be changing but my love for you is as strong as the day we shared our very first kiss.
After all this time we are still lovers, still best friends, and our love for each other grow stronger every day
Because of this I have no worries, no concerns that our music will ever end.
There is only darkness in hate but in love there is light.
As Father’s Day draws to a close I look back on this picture. I am too young to have any memories of this moment but as I look upon it I feel the love that my father always had for me as he holds me in his arms. Protecting me from danger as he would do until the day he left this earth. Now years after his going home to be with the Lord I can still feel myself being protected by him as if I was still being carried in his arms. I still feel his love and while I miss him every day I have no doubt that whenever the need arises in my life he is there for me spiritually. Guiding me and protecting me.
