True Companion

Sands of time drift silently by us,
yet here we are climbing invisible mountains carelessly left behind,
alone; yet never alone
true companions . . .

Evening hours sift seamlessly into the bleak tranquility of dawn,
and here we are once again,
facing truth and light, overwhelmed . . .
but still impossibly together
true companions . . .

the Years grow wings, birds leave the nest and
here we are, holding hands, in some kind of crazy love
taking this life day by crazy day
the best way we know how . . .
just me and you,
my one true companion –
and I love you . . .

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I would offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met
There’s no doubt in my mind where you belong

I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling down the avenue
There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin’ sea
Down the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
But you ain’t seen nothing like me yet

There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
Make you happy, make your dreams come true
To make you feel my love
