Always, There Was You

I was content to be your friend
When I needed a confidant
When I thought my world torn apart
Always, there was you

I was there when you needed a companion
My support and understanding were yours-a gift
Whatever your troubles
My goal was to be a friend like you

We shared our greatest hopes and deepest fears
Bearing our souls, trusting each other
And, without our notice
There was a beautiful blending of our hearts

Now, after all this time
I discover the love of my life
Was by my side
My friend, my love endlessly
