This Love I Keep 3

It’s taken a long time to see you,
The mystery behind a thousand stories.
For many years, you’ve given me friendship;
You’ve been reason to wake up in the middle of the night,
And my reason to keep on going.
You’ve stood up for my honour
And you’ve sung my praises
And you taught me to cope
When life was hard and I was alone.
You showed me how to live.
I don’t say it enough but,
I love you.
