growth of love


secrets, lies, and hands held oh so close
only together for the months of ten
seems like forever when she loves you most
love grows and grows with each and every amen

found a man that puts her first with you, and I
corrects himself every time with his me and you
he drys those drops of salt and doesn't make you cry
laughter in pain, and tears in joy, together you grow

together through the highs waves and low tides
for the baby showers, but the funerals as well
for the rainy days, and the horseback rides
trust never betrayed, secrets you'll never tell

spectator's eyes can see, and hearts can read
mouths will smile, and lips will speak of
hollowness not for you but happiness instead
this is what marriages are made of
you and I and God up above

I wish you happiness now, but joy forever
for the past to be healed and the future to be bright
for acceptance of family and separation never
this I pray, but most of all, that God will be your light
