Never

 

I have never loved enough to say this much
But after finding you, love became a must
Walking through life with your kisses and hugs
Is like my wishes floating on an gifted rug
Because I feel lifted by what your love does

After giving me the air that I needed to breathe
Your beautiful heart has inflated me
But there’s no more waiting to exhale for us
The size of your heart is like a prize from God
Like a double XL wrapped from above

And I never thought I could love this much
But “never” ended when forever found us
Now as I sit and compare the days of old
To all the beautiful days my future holds
It’s like comparing rocks to a pot of gold

I know that love can’t be bought or sold
But after I got to know the heart you hold
I was so ready to sell you my soul
And while I’m letting the truth be told
I don’t ever want to let you go

All because God has placed us together
My “never” has turned into forever
My weather has changed for the better
I prayed to God; he said love her hard
And she’ll love you the same if you let her

I never thought I could trust enough to love
Now I never want to lose love’s trust
I never thought a heart was made for me
Now I don’t know how my days would be
If our hearts would ever beat separately

My deepest appreciation for you
Is something I promise to never lose
I promise to never neglect or disrespect
Or hurt the heart that loves me
For you turned my never into eternity
