The Gift of Love

Take this heart I offer you

and all that lives within,

tell me something I can cling to

when the world’s as dark as sin.

Quench the fire that’s in my blood,

before I am consumed;

for I will surely die of love

as deep as any wound.
Hold my hand and guide me

through the labyrinth of lies.

Show me there’s a place for me

for ever by your side.

Rest inside my warm embrace

your heart is safe with me;

I will love you all my life…

for we were meant to be.
Let me hold you close

in the twilight of our years,

build a wall around us;

where there are no more tears.

Take this love, keep it safe;

for it belongs to you.

Let it live within your heart

the whole of our lives through.
