YOU & ME
by carla j carr-goldie
It all started, i believe, long ago
The day you touched inside my soul.
I swore it was all just a dream;
Now you & I are a united team.
You've been the one to dry my tears
You said to me, "I'll make sure there are no fears."
When life was black & I was low
You reassured me that we'd go slow.
Never once have you turned away;
Stood beside me & wouldn't let me stray.
Away from a life you knew I could make;
Your intentions, I know, were anything but fake.
You are my life, my soul & my heart;
You protect me & were there from the start.
You share my aspirations & dreams;
You & I will never fray from our seams.
I want so many things for you;
It hurts to know that your life makes you blue.
Whatever it takes is what I'm going to do.
Take you away & make your dreams all come true.
You deserve nothing but the best,
I won't let you settle like the rest.
I will take care of you, like you did for me.
You & I can now let our hearts be what they will be.
Dedicated to my best friend in the world:
for always and forever, Rick Strain.
