A warmth burns inside me

And your closeness makes it show

That orange bond makes me glow

I smile at strangers, and they too

Notice I stand more vibrant than the rest

I wrap my arms around life and squeeze

I feel hands on me, and the hug returns

Looking up, I see it’s you holding me

And my feet have left the ground

You caught me and my enthusiasm

And your energy balances us as one

 

My caring, smiling eyes glow upon your straight lips

These faces of pink lift our love-kissed cheeks higher

Connected link to link, we make circles with our arms

A space where our expanded hearts touch

A tender catch we’ll never release

You’ll wear my name on your heart

And I’ll carry the heart you made me

The words they pour build our worlds

The secret but shared and the real but radiant

Our lips upon them make them ours

 

You’re walking towards me

And I know we’re laying the pavement

You gather flat stones to use

And show me where to find and place mine

So our paths will be one for us

We’ve walked separately but kept our eyes ahead

Following our God, we remain loyal to One and our other

None but my other will do

Because no one else is you

So that’s why I’ve waited alone

Moving closer as you help me step forward to you

 

My caring, smiling eyes glow upon your straight lips

These faces of pink lift our love-kissed cheeks higher

Connected link to link, we make circles with our arms

A space where our expanded hearts touch

A tender catch we’ll never release

You’ll wear my name on your heart

And I’ll carry the heart you made me

The words they pour build our worlds

The secret but shared and the real but radiant

Our lips upon them make them ours

 

The path toward each other yellow

We smile as us, friends most dear

I see you first, but you soak me in

One of many joys I’ll share

Giving you a soft place to rest

Your soul pierces through me

And I see the man you will be

Pieces no one else will see

You peer into my golden rings

And our blue pools turn into an ocean

What we discuss will surface under this sun

 

My caring, smiling eyes glow upon your straight lips

These faces of pink lift our love-kissed cheeks higher

Connected link to link, we make circles with our arms

A space where our expanded hearts touch

A tender catch we’ll never release

You’ll wear my name on your heart

And I’ll carry the heart you made me

The words they pour build our worlds

The secret but shared and the real but radiant

Our lips upon them make them ours
